About Us

Welcome to Aspire India Scholars Programme (AISP)-2020.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, the O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed To Be University) administration had initially decided to postpone AISP 2020 to Winter break in 2020. However, after reviewing the unfolding situation, the University administration thinks that it will be also risky to host the 2 weeks on-campus programme for high school students even during winter break in 2020. Hence, we will host the Aspire India Scholars Programme for high school students again in 2021.

JGU has successfully turned all existing college level degree programmes online due to the COVID-19 situation and lockdown. We have also received QS I-GUAGE E-LEAD CERTIFICATE for Excellence in E-Learning and academic digitization. But, this is an emergency response in the context of the COVID-19 lockdown. Hosting the AISP for high school students does not make any sense, since children are already burdened with online teaching from their respective schools. It also does not serve the purpose to JGU to offer students experience of being in a 2-week residential college campus for college-level teaching and learning experience with our faculty.

Program Name Eligibility Dates
