The Genius+ programme will be offering scholarships primarily to first-year applicants, who will be selected on the basis of their JEE rank. If the selected students have a minimum CPI (CGPA) of 8.0 or higher, the scholarship will be renewed for the second to the fourth year as well.

OPPO India has also planned to extend the scholarship programme to Masters and PhD students eventually, so that it can invest in the future of technological leaders in the industry, said the company in an official statement.

“India holds true potential to become the innovation hub. This programme is a step towards helping young people around the world gain access to better educational and learning opportunities, carving an innovative future together. We hope to empower more students through this programme and prepare the innovators of tomorrow,” said Tasleem Arif, OPPO India’s vice-president and India R&D head.

This programme will provide financial assistance to selected students, who will not have to bear any of the costs associated with their education under this programme.

The application dates are yet to be announced by the company.

OPPO has also partnered with IIT Hyderabad to boost scientific and technological research. It envisaged joint research and development for multiple projects over two years to develop new technologies in areas specific to camera and image processing, networks (5G), battery, system performance and Artificial Intelligence among other areas.
