This summer also sees the exciting  launch of the Ashoka International Summer Research Programme (AISRP). The Ashoka International Summer Research Programme (AISRP) offers internships for undergraduate and master’s students from international partners and beyond to participate in cutting edge interdisciplinary research carried out by faculty and research centers at Ashoka. We are receiving applications from many global universities for the programme.  Cornell University has nominated its students for the programme. These students will collaborate with Professor Sudipta Tung’s project on exploring Impact of diet on behavioral traits and aging. Ashoka students will be joining Cornell this fall for the semester exchange programme.

This year, Ashoka students will be also participating in the UC Santa Cruz Summer research programme, NTU Global Connect Fellowship Programme and the Mountaintop research programmes in Lehigh University among others. Looking ahead to the summer this year, over 200 Ashoka students will have the chance to experience new cultures and academic environments at prestigious academic institutions including Stanford, UC Berkeley, HEC Paris, King’s College London, LMH Oxford and the London School of Economics.

New opportunities!

GESP is finalising Ashoka’s student participation in the University of Toronto’s International Urban Capstone Project (IMUCP), which is a full academic year independent research course for fourth-year undergraduate students offered by the School of Cities at the University of Toronto. The programme will be anchored by the University of Toronto India Foundation.

A high-level delegation from the University of Notre Dame visited Ashoka in January 2024 to define the scope of strategic collaborative initiatives, student exchange starting from Fall 2024.  Along with courses, the Fall semester at University of Notre Dame will  provide Ashoka students the opportunity to join the student business club and to get involved with the Notre Dame entrepreneurship partner, the Idea Center. 

A new MoU with ESSEC Business School, France enables ESSEC and Ashoka to collaborate on different projects -short  programmes, entrepreneurship, or research. A student exchange programme with ESSEC Global BBA programme also has been added in the MoU and exchange of students will start from Fall 2024.

Due to our partnership with HEC Paris, Ashoka 4th year students now can apply for a semester exchange in HEC’s Master of Management (MiM) programme. In addition, both universities are in talks to develop a thematic one-week intensive programme for Ashokans for Summer 2025.

Ashoka semester exchange programme has grown significantly with new partners from USA, Canada, France, UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland. Currently Ashoka students are spending their spring semester in University of Sheffield, University College Maastricht, Columbia University, University of Geneva and Sciences Po. Similarly students from Sciences Po, HEC Paris, Tokyo University of International Affairs and King’s College London are spending their spring  semester at Ashoka.
