What a fabulous opportunity! It looks like it only applies to girls under 18 and from India, but I couldn't find it? Thanks for sharing.

I saw that, but I wasn't sure if that just meant students from India or if they would accept students outside India. I assumed it was India only. I sent it to loads of women. I hope some deserving girls get a great opportunity here. Thanks again for sharing.
