Prodigy Finance announces three new student scholarship recipients

Prodigy Finance - December 23, 2016

In September, Prodigy Finance announced the first two winners of our student scholarship programme: Vyom Vats is pursuing his Masters in Analytics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Scheller College of Business. Working towards his MBA at the Yale School of Management, Abhirath Anuwal was the second recipient.

The remaining three recipients of this inaugural programme have been selected this month.

Prodigy Finance scholarship recipient Mayank Makhija

Mayank Makhija is passionate about social impact and enjoys working on problems facing non-profits and foundations. To further his work, he’s undertaking his MBA at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.

“The pay-it-forward culture at Booth is truly exceptional. I was sure I'd be supported in whatever I want to pursue… Prodigy Finance's scholarship will help reduce my debt, giving me freedom to explore more career as well as co-curricular opportunities at Booth that I otherwise might not have considered.”


At 22, Saumya Jain founded a school for underprivileged children in India after completing her undergrad in Biochemical Engineering Biotechnology. She’s currently working towards her MBA at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

“I am very thankful to have been chosen as a Prodigy Scholarship awardee and feel truly grateful for this honour. This scholarship will help me achieve my entrepreneurial dreams a lot quicker. With a smaller financial burden than before, I hope to be able to start my venture sooner.”

Prodigy Finance scholarship recipient Sanket Modi

Planning to transition into a new career following his MBA, Sanket Modi truly appreciates the collaborative and action-driven environment at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. 

“Pursuing an MBA at Michigan is instrumental to my plans for the future. Prodigy has enabled to me attend business school and get access to the required funding. It has been a pleasure to interact with the Prodigy team - I cannot imagine a more seamless and transparent loan application experience. The scholarship goes a long way in helping me pay for business school and presents me with the freedom to pursue exciting opportunities in my MBA life and career beyond b-school.”

Students with a Prodigy Finance loan to study in the United States or the United Kingdom were automatically considered for the scholarship. Selection was based on a combination of merit and need-based factors.

The Prodigy Finance Scholarship programme furthers the company’s primary goal of making international graduate education more affordable and accessible. 

Cameron Stevens, CEO of Prodigy Finance believes “the scholarship will allow even more international students to further their careers with a degree from a top university. We believe the financial services industry needs to work harder for the world’s most talented individuals regardless of where they are from.”

The selected students each received $20,000 towards their education.
