Most Popular Scholarships

Going abroad for higher studies is an ambition that many Indians have. From a young age they are told of the many benefits it offers. A degree from a prestigious university in the west means a high-paid job in a well-known firm. 

Destinations such as America, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and New Zealand see a lot of Indian students in their colleges. Finding a seat in a university is far from easy and can be expensive. 

There is, however, a silver lining in the form of scholarships for Indians. Overseas educational consultants lay a lot of emphasis on securing these scholarships. 

Here are some of the popular Scholarships offered to Indian students—
