NEW DELHI, July 6, 2022 — Anvisha Chopra, Arnab Bordoloi, Aryan Vadera, and Shruti Arora are the winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Meritorious 100% Scholarship 2022.

Ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world (QS Ranking), Deakin University has a proud history of engagement with India and was the first international university to set up an office in India in 1994. Over the past 28 years, Deakin University’s office in New Delhi has served as the hub of its regional operations.

Deakin has been partnering with India through various initiatives, such as the Deakin Vice-Chancellor’s Meritorious 100% Scholarships, launched in 2014. These prestigious scholarships are part of Deakin University’s industry ‘Changing Lives,’ which aims to support students who are achieving high academic standards and can contribute to other areas across the university. The overall aim of the scholarship is to give back to India the skills and experience they gain at Deakin University in Australia.

Nine finalists were selected from over eight hundred students who applied for the scholarship across India. These finalists then went through a rigorous selection procedure which included a group discussion on the importance of critical technologies in education and the future of work. After the group discussion, six candidates were selected for the personal interview round. Finally, a panel of judges chose the scholarship winners. The judges included Ravneet Pawha, Vice President (Global Alliances) and CEO (South Asia), Deakin University; Mathew Johnston, Minister-Counsellor (Education and Research), Australian High Commission and Abhilash Mishra, CEO, NSE Academy Limited.

Professor Iain Martin, President and Vice-Chancellor of Deakin University, said, “At Deakin, we are proud of our diverse student cohort - at any given time, we have students from more than 130 countries studying on our campuses.”

“Indian students have been a central part of our unique university community, contributing new perspectives and ideas, helping us build our vibrant and inclusive culture, and bringing high academic standards. I congratulate the winners of Vice-Chancellor’s Meritorious 100% Scholarships 2022, and I look forward to seeing them enjoying their time with us in Australia and realizing their full potential.”

Ravneet Pawha, Vice President (Global Alliances) and CEO (South Asia), Deakin University, said, “From TEDx speaker to UNICEF young warrior, the finalists were a truly exceptional group, and it was a difficult task for the judges to pick the winners.”

“The Vice-Chancellor’s Meritorious 100% Scholarship recipients this year are passionate about making the world a better place; their vision is what sets them apart,” she explained.

The scholarship winners will commence their studies onshore at Deakin University, Australia. In addition, they will have the opportunity to be a part of the Vice-Chancellor’s Professional Excellence Program, which is a development program that will help them explore their aspirations and career opportunities through workshops, development meetings, and academic mentorship.

Shruti Arora, one of this year’s scholarship recipients, said, “This scholarship is an opportunity for me to reach my potential and give back to society by working for a cause I strongly believe in. Furthermore, with this scholarship, I will be able to gain a diversity of experience by studying a Bachelor of Psychological Sciences at Deakin.”
