Cuttack, Orissa: Sri Sri University has in collaboration with the Overseas Volunteer for a Better India (OVBI) and Dr Ritu Mathur, academician from US, announced 12 scholarships for students to pursue a Masters Program (MA) in Good Governance and Public Policy. This was in order to groom ethical, effective and empowered leaders in politics.
This is a pioneering initiative in India, with the first-ever global partnership to train young minds in politics and political leadership. The SSU-OVBI Political Governance Scholarship (SOPGS) is aimed at creating youth capital for national political development.
Applications are invited from students who are deeply interested in political reforms, political leadership and political governance.
“During the two-year program, students will receive rigorous theoretical and practical training in political affairs, party and election management, political governance and public policy-making. The program will thoroughly groom young minds into leaders by facilitating intensive mentoring by the members of Legislative Assemblies and Members of Parliament.” Shared Dr K C Mishra, the VC of the university. The thrust of the programme will be on ethical and good governance through politics.
graduating students will have several career opportunities open to them. They will be able to work with regional and national political parties, participating and contesting in elections; or work as speech writers and consultants for political leaders; or become policy researchers and analysts.
Envisioned by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Sri Sri University offers a curriculum that enriches both domain expertise and life-skills. The Art of Living programme is an integral part of the curriculum at the university. The programme equips the students with tools and techniques to handle stress as well as understand and handle their minds, without which any education is incomplete. Thus the university offers an education that is a blend of western innovation with the spiritual values and wisdom of the East.
