Sharing his thoughts on this achievement, Progyan Das said, “I feel delighted to be one of the Cargill Global Scholars for this year. Seeing my photograph in the email document next to the photographs of my co-awardees from across the country, who have also done some incredibly amazing things, was an intensely humbling experience. But perhaps the greatest outcome from becoming a Cargill Scholar is their invaluable mentorship programme, and that is something I am greatly looking forward to.”

Only 10 undergraduate students from all over India get a chance to be part of the Cargill Global Scholars Programme every year. The scholarship programme is a distinctive, two-year leadership development programme that provides financial support and one-on-one mentoring to students for leadership development.
