About India Student Hub

The Embassy of India Student Hub is an Embassy of India (Washington D.C.) Education Team initiative to engage Indian students studying in the United States in India’s development. The Student Hub is a platform for students to connect, collaborate, and converse -- both with each other, and as well as with the Embassy of India, Washington D.C. The Student Hub thrives on student-led, student-run programming and opportunities to develop leadership among students. The hope is to nurture (a) personal, societal and civic responsibility, (b) an entrepreneurial mindset, and (c) principled next generation leadership for India and the world.

As an innovative, dynamic, relatively independent youth team seeking to help India build substantive bridges via education, the Student Hub strives to facilitate conversations with U.S. universities and administrators. We hope to strengthen knowledge partnership between India and the United States, to seed robust cross-border research and academic collaborations, and to rally improvements to the educational eco-systems in both countries.
