Wonder Girls will not be responsible in the event there are cancellations and/or modifications to the list of Speakers and/or Facilitators and/or Externship Partners.  

3. Application Process and Selection Criteria to our Programme 

To apply to our Programme, please fill our Application form which is available on our website https://www.wondergirls.academy/. The form requires your and/or your child’s basic information and some questions to allow us to gain an insight into your child’s vision and skills. All the Personal Information collected by us during the application process is handled with utmost care and is protected under our Privacy Policy. Please review our Privacy Policy which also governs your access and use of the Platform and/or our Services. 

Applicants are assessed and gauged on their capacity to think and reflect, their professional ambitions, passions, hobbies, current skills and/or completed projects, intellectual curiosity, desire to learn and grow, proactive & collaborative nature, social consciousness, and well-roundedness. Our selection process is fair, transparent and unbiased based on the application and interview of each applicant. The selection process takes about a total approximately 8-12 weeks.

Based on the information provided in the Application form, we shortlist the applicants, who are then invited for a 15-minute video interview. After the video interview, the decision to choose the final applicants to our Programme is taken. Applicants who are chosen for our Programme are referred to as “Fellows”. After a Fellow is selected, an email is sent to the email id through which the Application form was submitted to confirm and accept their place in the Programme and pay the requisite fees for the Programme with the deadline for acceptance and payment. 

An email is also sent to the applicants who were not successful in getting selected to our Programme. As the seats are limited, we are not able to take on each applicant. Our decision regarding selection of our Fellows is final and binding on all applicants. Applicants/Parents/legal guardians shall not dispute the selection criteria.      

We trust that all the information that was provided to us by the Applicants is true and correct. In the event of any misrepresentation, we reserve the right to take appropriate action including cancellation of the Fellow’s admission from the Programme. 

4. Fees and Refund Policy

At present, our Programme costs INR 40,000/- (Rupees forty thousand only) exclusive of taxes per Fellow. The Fee has to be paid within two weeks of being notified of the Fellow’s selection in our Programme. The Fee is subject to changes at the discretion of Wonder Girls and a prior intimation will be provided by us to all the Fellows, in the event the Fee is changed after the Fellows are selected to our Programme. In the event the Fee is changed prior to the application process, the revised Fee will be updated on our website. 

There will be no refund in the event of withdrawal of a Fellow from the Programme. The seat in our Programme is non-transferrable. We receive highly-competitive applications from all across India, and we pick the best to be a part of this Programme. Withdrawal of a Fellow takes away the slot from an otherwise eligible candidate who could have benefited immensely from the Programme. 

5. Externship Mapping

Externship mapping will be done by us based on Fellow skills and organizational requirements and preferences. However, please note while we will attempt that a Fellow gets placed at her preferred externship  organization, the same cannot be guaranteed as the decision is holistically made based on organizational requirements and Fellow skills. Further, our role is limited to only mapping a Fellow with the respective organization and we have no role once the Fellow accepts/rejects the externship. Any concern regarding the externship shall be taken up with the respective organization directly by the Fellow and not with us.
