Vice Chancellor’s Message

I have great pleasure in announcing the launch of the fourth batch of the Aspire India Scholars Programme (AISP) 2022, a programme under the aegis of the International Institute for Higher Education Research & Capacity Building (IIHEd) of the O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed To Be University). This 10-day unique summer school will be held from June 15–25, 2022, online as well as offline. This programme has been designed by JGU faculty members to guide high school students (IX, X, XI & XII Standard) through their crucial transition from high school to higher education.


AISP 2022 curriculum will help students get a global perspective, learn how to be more holistic, and think about ethical issues through theme-based modules in 12 interdisciplinary areas: Law, Justice, and Democracy; Business Management, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship; Diplomacy, International Relations, and Peace; Economy, Public Policy, and Development; Liberal Arts, Culture, and Humanities; Media Communication and Public Affairs; Art, Architecture & Design; Banking, Finance and Accounting; and Climate Change, Environment & Sustainability; Psychology & Counselling; Languages and Literature; and Public Health and Human Development. This programme will provide students with knowledge and perspectives on the various options and opportunities available for higher education. The students will also learn from the experience of Aspire India Ambassadors - young achievers from different professional fields who are acclaimed nationally and globally. They will address our summer school students and share their challenges in making the transition from high school to higher education. Students will learn about their failures, which eventually became pillars of their success.
