Two new Prodigy Finance scholarship recipients

We’re celebrating our 10-year anniversary by awarding ten scholarships for Master’s degree students, worth $10,000 each. Five scholarships will be awarded to business students and five scholarships to engineering students studying at a supported school in the UK and US, Anyone who accepts a Prodigy Finance loan before 30 November 2017 is eligible.

At the end of March, we selected our first two recipients. 


Jaydeep Soni worked in quantitative finance on both the buy-side and the sell-side - at the intersection of my passion in statistics, programming and finance. Currently attending Columbia University, Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, he is studying MS in Operations Research. He believes it provides a holistic platform to augment the skill set necessary to succeed as a practitioner in the field, with coursework spanning applied math, financial engineering and business.

“The seamlessness and transparency of the Prodigy loan process is unparalleled, and it has been an absolute pleasure interacting with the team. This scholarship goes a long way in helping me realize my professional goals more immediately, allowing me the freedom to pursue more unconventional post-graduation opportunities.”

Kaushiki Dutta is pursuing her MS in Business Analytics and Program Management at the University of Connecticut’s School of Business. Keen to develop her skills in predictive models and statistical analysis, she believes the school and its courses are the best fit to build off her Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering.

“My journey would not have started if Prodigy didn’t help me with my finances. At a time when I was struggling hard to gather finances, this scholarship saved me from all my stress. Not only is it $10,000 less to repay, but it allows me to consider my plan of pursuing my PHD, as well.”
