Sona BLW Precision Forgings Ltd ("Sona Comstar"), has signed an MoU with Ashoka University to provide scholarship to eligible Women Scholars pursuing Computer Science or Mathematics as their major/minor in the undergraduate program. 
The program will benefit fourteen meritorious and deserving women students from economically weaker backgrounds for three years.
Commenting on the partnership, Kiran M Deshmukh, Group CTO, Sona Comstar, said, "We are happy to partner with the prestigious Ashoka University to provide scholarships to women graduate students. Women's lack of participation in the workforce is a cause of concern for the manufacturing industry. One of the root causes is that the talent pool for women in STEM is small. Our partnership with Ashoka University is a step towards promoting women's representation in STEM education and workforce."
"The partnership between Ashoka University and Sona Comstar in extending scholarships to women students pursuing undergraduate studies in mathematics and computer sciences is in line with the university's focus to expand its sciences programme. It is a great opportunity to promote STEM education among women from economically weaker sections in India. 
We hope that more students will be encouraged to take STEM courses through this opportunity and add to our robust sciences programme in the university," Venkat Eshwara, Pro Vice Chancellor, Ashoka University, said.

At around 10:53 AM, Sona BLW Precision Forgings Ltd is currently trading at Rs521.20 per share up by Rs6.45 or 1.25% from its previous closing of Rs514.75 per share on the BSE.
