Over the past 5 years, IVYDreams has gone from strength to strength having learnt not only from the success of our scholars, but also from our failures. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we have sought to continually incorporate the learnings into our processes and as a result our selection percentage as well as absolute numbers have continued to grow from 75% at the inception to 94% in the previous cohort with more than 86% of our scholars receiving some form of financial aid and an average of nearly 3 offers per scholar!

-> This year also IVYDreams scholars have secured admits in Top B-Schools across the world ranging from Indian B-Schools like IIM-B, IIM-C and ISB to global B-Schools like Oxford Said, LBS, IE, INSEAD, Stanford GSB, Chicago Booth, MIT Sloan, Mc Gill, Rotman among others.

-> Our scholars have also secured a large number of offers from top policy schools like the Harvard Kennedy School, Oxford Blavatnik, Chicago Harris, Berkeley Goldman, Columbia SIPA, LSE, IDS, KCL, Hertie, Sciences Po, Erasmus etc. In addition we have also seen commendable success in the realm of education schools like Harvard Graduate School of Education, Stanford Graduate School of Education, Teachers College Columbia, Vanderbilt Peabody, UCL, UBC-Faculty of Education among others.

-> Over the years we have had the opportunity of working with very diverse set of scholars applying and getting selected into schools like Pratt, New School, NYU, ESMOD etc. for a host of different domains ranging from Design, to Interior Design to Music to Fashion design to Art to Media to Museum Studies and Journalism. This has enhanced our expertise considerably to assist a diverse set of interest areas. This was also possible because we intentionally experimented with a diverse cohort of scholars coming from more than twenty different domain areas spread across Europe, US, Asia, North America and Africa.

-> Among international scholarships we had selections in Fulbright, Commonwealth Shared, Commonwealth Masters, Chevening and Joint Japan World Bank Scholarships. We have also succeeded in cracking Indian scholarships like INLAKS, AKDN International Scholarship Program, J.N. Tata Scholarship among others.
