About Ms Priya Garg

Ms Priya Garg is the trustee of two NGOs: The Corporate House and We, the Humans (both incorporated in 2021). For the last year, about 100 students from different premier universities have pro-bono served as research assistants for Ms Garg, and in turn for her 2 NGOs.

About the Research Assistantship Opportunity

This Research Assistantship Opportunity is similar to the ones offered before with a tweak that student researchers, besides working on a research project or independent research write up, may also be required/expected to take up some leadership work, be it in the field of fund-raising, outreach, collaborations, among other activities.

This would allow students to hone not only their research and writing skills but also their soft/leadership skills and get a unique and rounded experience.
