Asha Student Tushar from Mayapuri Slum community reached Sydney

We are extremely delighted to inform you that Asha student Tushar from Mayapuri has finally reached Sydney to pursue Masters in International Relations at the prestigious University of Sydney on 23rd December 2021. He was accorded a warm welcome by the team from the University and after three days of mandatory quarantine and multiple RTPCR tests, he has settled in St. Paul’s College, where his accommodation has been provided by the University. His programme will commence in a few weeks.

Tushar was selected for the Master’s Programme at the University under the Sydney Scholars India Equity Scholarship which will cover his educational and living expenses for the entire duration of his studies.

As a result of the International Travel restrictions because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Tushar started pursuing the programme through the online mode from his home in Delhi slum with a laptop and internet connection which he purchased from the scholarship amount and scored 83.5% aggregate in his first semester.


Thank you, Ms Tanya Rhodes Taylor, Mr Tim Field, Mr Nishant Yadav, and the entire Sydney Future Students Team for your help and support to Tushar and for presenting him with this life-changing opportunity.

After completing the Master’s Programme, he wants to pursue a career in International Relations as a think tank in the field of Policy Research. Tushar is also committed to supporting Asha’s endeavour to help other students like him from underprivileged backgrounds to change their life’s destiny through Higher Education.
