About GeoScholars

GeoScholars is an initiative created to give global exposure to Indian students in terms of academia, research activities, training, internships and employment.

We, at GeoScholars, believe that it is imperative for students to develop a holistic approach towards education, beyond curriculum and theoretical knowledge. We venture towards establishing an experience for the students where theoretical knowledge could be coupled with practical execution. We develop opportunities for students to undertake research activities, corporate apprenticeships, training programs with institutes and organizations in India and overseas.

We, at GeoScholars also endeavor towards defining curriculum beyond geographical boundaries and bringing forth an international platform for students in and across the globe. In lieu with this, we organize and propagate full time admission in foreign universities, student exchange programs, faculty exchange programs, course sharing, e-learning and simulation experiences.

Our programs are executed in partnership with leading universities and institutions in Europe, United States of America, Japan and South Africa.
