The Study in India program has designed a framework to award scholarships and tuition fee waivers for meritorious students applying to the program. The Study in India team has collaborated with the Indian government wings - MHRD, MEA, and MIC, to draw out this scheme. The program offers scholarships called the Study in India Scholarships on an annual basis, while its partner institutes provide tuition fee waivers.
The Study in India Scholarship scheme covers the admission fees, tuition fees, accommodation (room and boring) costs, and food costs. Any costs and expenses outside the above mentioned are not considered under this scheme. The scheme is further divided into two sub-schemes, based on a merit list and the Ind-SAT examination. A set of scholarships are offered based on a merit-list, which is evaluated and verified by the Study in India team during the document verification process. The team also reviews and awards scholarships to exemplary students who appear for the online-proctored, 90-minute Ind-SAT examination conducted by the Study in India team and the National Testing Agency.
More than 30,000 tuition fee waivers are given to deserving students by our partner institutes in the ranges of 100%, 50%, and 25%. The number of fee waivers available, vary from institute to institute across the mentioned ranges. The costs covered under this scheme only waives off tuition fee for one academic year.
