Nestlings begins free student counselling service in India, offers $250,000 in scholarships

Bengaluru, Nov 25 (UNI) Nestlings, a cloud-based AI platform based in the Silicon Valley in California opened their first office outside of the USA in India with the launch of their Bengaluru office here on Thursday.
Nestlings, co-founded by Bengaluru couple settled in California - Rajashekar Basavaraju and Sowmya Satish - offers a one-stop solution that connects students with higher education universities abroad and within the country, student loans, scholarship, internships, placements and visa assistance – all on a single platform and the services are completely free for students.
It is also offering a total scholarship of $250,000 for the first few applicants and announced free International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) training for the first 100 students to register.
“The idea of providing a 360 degree service for the students germinated from our personal experience where we had to struggle to get information and had to apply separately for each of the institutes and there was no proper guidance. After a successful stint in the USA, we thought of helping students from our motherland,” said Sowmya, CEO Nestlings, and a former Apple Product employee.
Karnataka IT Minister Dr CN Ashwath Narayan, who flagged off the India operations, said with the opening of Bengaluru office, Nestlings will cater to thousands of students from Karnataka who are desirous of pursuing higher education and career ready internships.
"I think it is a boon for the students who wish to pursue higher studies or looking for internships at premium institutes. I had earlier said that we will involve private institutions for job placement for our students and this is the way in the right direction. We are also looking at making Karnataka as the preferred destination for education as we have some of the best colleges and Universities in the country," he said.
So far, Nestlings has more than 50,000 students on its platform and has partnered with over 300 universities and more recently, signed a premium partnership with one of the largest student loan providers and testing centers in Southeast Asia.
