Improving access to higher education and creating opportunities of growth for learners from marginalised communities in India.

Our Work

At Project EduAccess - India, we are committed to the goal of empowering learners from marginalised and historically disadvantaged communities in India. We do this by working towards increasing their representation in higher education and creating opportunities for their personal and professional development.


In 2022-23, we ran a large-scale graduate mentorship programme to support learners from marginalised groups with their applications to UK universities and scholarship bodies for postgraduate study. Over the span of a year, we mentored a group of over 400 mentees through a network of 350 expert mentors. As of May 2023, as between 137 of these mentees, we recorded 291 admission offers and 19 scholarship offers.


Riding on this momentum, we are launching the graduate mentorship programme again, for a second year. We are also planning to offer long-term and research-based mentoring - more on this below!
