Shreyoshi Ghosh, Executive Officer at IIT-KGP, most recently managing media relations and social media communications, has joined the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA, as a full-time, on-campus student, to pursue graduate studies in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.
Shreyoshi has received a full scholarship from Dr. Vinod Gupta, a distinguished IIT-Kharagpur alumnus (1967/AG/RK), entrepreneur, and philanthropist, through his non-profit initiative, the World Education Foundation. Vinod has championed the cause of women's education, empowerment and equality, and societal upliftment of underprivileged communities in India and around the world. He has been instrumental in funding several students over the years for their education at IIT Kharagpur as well as their studies abroad. He also pioneered management and law education in the IIT system by setting up the Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSOM) and the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL), both of which are consistently ranked as top schools in their respective domains by the Govt. of India's National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF).
This is likely another first for the IIT system, that a member of the non-teaching staff has been sponsored by a distinguished alumnus of the Institute to pursue higher studies abroad.
We wish Shreyoshi success in her educational journey!
