Recruitment marketplace Monster India, owned and operated by Quess Corp, has launched a fellowship program.

According to a media report, the Zuno Fellowship Programme includes online tests, based on which support worth $1.3 million U.S. will be awarded annually to students pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate courses. Monster India is expecting about 300,000 students to take part in the first edition.

“Monster has always been keen on ensuring that the youth of today have sufficient resources and access to an equal head start in life, regardless of their location,” said Sekhar Garisa, CEO of Monster India.

“Helping every student find their best first job is the vision with which we built Zuno and started the fellowship programme. Scouting talent from even the most remote corners of the country to bring them to the forefront of India Inc., the programme aims to empower youth with the best internship opportunities to better their abilities.”

Parent Quess Corp is predominantly a payroll-services company with subsidiaries including Monster job sites in India, Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong — verticals acquired in 2018 from Monster Worldwide Inc., owned by Randstad Holding NV. Quess Corp recently announced its consolidated financial performance in Q1, FY22-23, which saw revenues grow by 33% year over year.

Monster India previously launched an exclusive recruitment drive for women, LGBTQ and PwD communities, and later raised $18 million U.S. from multiple investors. At least 280 Zuno Fellowship Programme applicants stand the chance of winning cash and non-cash rewards, including free courses and the opportunity to intern at some of the top organizations in the country.

Headquartered in Hyderabad, Monster India started its operations in 2001 under the ownership of Monster Worldwide Inc. The company has since scaled its operations pan-India.
