Prodigy Finance - September 16, 2016

This month we announce the first two recipients of our inaugural student scholarship programme; Vyom Vats is studying a Masters in Analytics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Scheller College of Business, and Abhirath Anuwal, is in the second year of his MBA at the Yale School of Management.

“At Georgia Tech, the Master in Analytics program is offered jointly by the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, the College of Computing and the College of Business. All well-renowned, it was evident to me that the quality of education offered would be top-notch", Vyom said. “The scholarship has given me a huge amount of freedom, and I can give more attention to my studies.”


"Yale's mission of educating leaders for business and society is what attracted me to the school the most", Abhirath said. "This scholarship goes a long way to help me pay for my tuition."

Both students were selected on the basis of our merit and need-based criteria. The scholarship programme provides five recipients with US$20,000 in funding towards their studies. There is no formal entrance requirement as all students who secure their loan to study in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, will automatically be considered for additional assistance. Only one scholarship will be awarded per academic institution.

There are still three more scholarships available, and the final recipients will be announced in December, 2016.

This is just another way Prodigy Finance makes funding your future that much easier.

Speaking about the programme, our CEO Cameron Stevens said:

“Applying to study at one of the world’s top universities is daunting, and at Prodigy Finance we are committed to making this worthwhile investment in your future easier and more accessible. Over 80% of those who use Prodigy Finance would otherwise not be able to finance their education.

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.”
