Applicable for:
All applicants have an opportunity to apply for scholarships offered by MBA ESG for its MBA programmes.



The purpose of the iLEAD Scholarship is to encourage youth to define, conceptualize and articulate problems and recommend innovative, adaptive, and disruptive solutions through exploration, learning (collective or individual), and empowering themselves to be a change-maker.

Selection process and criteria

We are on the look for young talented students who challenge the status quo, think out of the box, encourage intellectual curiosity, and empower themselves to become active citizens and positive change-makers who will contribute to the new future.

What do you need to do?

Applicants are expected to create a project, explaining how they will embody the values of the iLEAD scholarship in the project and how will they plan to influence in shaping the new future.


Your project - The New Future

The news is full of reports and updates on the issues we face. From the worldwide pandemic to climate change, to the increased rates of gender discrimination, to the many individuals who live without access to medical care, it can often feel like there are too many

Where do you even begin? Which problems need to be tackled first? And can one person bring about any change?

Well, you can! End of story. You could be the next social reformer of tomorrow. All you need to do is carefully study the common societal concerns in disarray or if there are other social-economic issues, you feel there is a need to act upon.

The idea is to find out the common/serious problems plaguing the world and create a solution to fix the issue you choose for the project. The solution you propose must comprise the acronyms that make up ILEAD, which are mentioned above.


Students must create a poster explaining how they fit well with the ILEAD scholarship’s values and how they will influence shaping the new future.

With COVID wrecking the lives of the people across the globe, there is no dearth of the problems faced by different communities/ ethnicities/ countries/ states, etc. The iLEAD Scholarship aims to develop an innovative, environment-friendly solution to fix the problem using the terms of the acronym ILEAD Scholarship.
