Through the scholarship program, Legrand aims to promote quality education to the Indian students to pursue their higher studies in France. Legrand has so far contributed to finance the cost of the studies of 33 Indian students, who went to pursue their Master’s programmes at various public and private universities. They came from varied study backgrounds: Economics, Engineering, Information Technology, Journalism etc.
