Dr.Reddy’s Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, focused on enhancing the dignity and well-being of socially and economically vulnerable people. We develop and test innovative solutions to address complex social problems and leverage partnerships to scale up impact. We work with Children, Youth (including Persons with Disabilities) Women and Households across 20 states in India.

Sashakt Scholarship is aimed at meritorious women who aspire for a career in science especially research. The scholarship provides them a grant spread over three years of their undergraduate study. Sashakt wants to promote and encourage more talented women from difficult backgrounds to take up higher education in the field of Science. The unique feature of this program is that each scholar is carefully selected to represent those from poor socio-economic backgrounds. They are then provided a senior woman scientist/ researcher who act as a mentor and role-model for these girls. They are closely followed during their graduation and also receive help in higher education if they choose to go into further studies leading to research. In 2018, 20 students hailing from different parts of India were selected who are studying in premier science colleges of the country. These students have family incomes of less than 2lakh annual incomes (less than $2700/annum) and sometimes come from difficult social circumstances. Most are first generation college goers. Our Mentors hail from prestigious research Institutions in India such as: Indian Institute of Science, Indian Institute of Technology, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research among others.
