Alumni Ambassadorship Programme
The Alumni Ambassadorship Programme was conceived for the promotion of quality people-to-people ties between India and France, particularly in education and research. 15 prominent Alumni of the prestigious France Alumni – India Chapter were inducted into the Alumni Ambassadorship Programme for 2021-23 by the French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs HE Mr Jean-Yves Le Drian, during his official visit to India in April 2021.
These Alumni have experienced the best of both worlds and have gone on to attain phenomenal success in their respective fields.
