However in the case of Imperial College London scholarships will be given for Engineering and Computer Science.Further we will consider Indian Studies, only if they have contemporary relevance.


    • Scholarships are open to all Indian citizens of either sex who hold a good degree from a recognized university and are resident in India at the time of application. All applicants must have done their first degree in India.

    • It is essential to have prior admission to the institution and course chosen. The Foundation will not consider candidates without admission or pending admission. The institutions concerned must only be top rank.

    • Candidates must be below 30 years of age on the first of July in the year of application. Preference will be given to candidates who have not yet studied abroad. Candidates who are already studying or have started their program abroad are not eligible.

    • The award of other grants, teaching assistantships and support from other sources for the proposed programme will be regarded by the Foundation as a positive factor. The Foundation also encourages applications from young people currently employed.
