Studying abroad is the dream of many students, yet its cost can sometimes prove prohibitive. That’s where scholarships come in handy – these financial awards can reduce or waive tuition fees and other expenses completely.
Here are a few international scholarships for Indian students after 12th, which you should take into consideration as your next steps in life. To apply for any scholarship, the first step should be ensuring you meet eligibility criteria; once that’s taken care of, start prepping for tests that you will be expected to take – standardised tests used by universities and schools as a means of assessing applicants; taking these exams successfully can aid your scholarship application process significantly.
For example, Japan hosts the Satyendra Nath Bose Indian American Scholarship programme offered by the Government of India, SERB and Indo US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) to encourage Indian students pursuing graduate research in Public Policy or Social Sciences at graduate level. To be considered, applicants must present an excellent academic record as well as extra-curricular activities.
