There are thousands of scholarships available for several courses and categories but one has to do a thorough research before getting a chance to win the same. These scholarships today are initiated to encourage students to turn their passion into their profession and fulfill their dreams. But at times, the application process can be quite stressful. There are thousands worth of scholarships in India available for both meritorious and underprivileged students.
A scholarship may at times be a one-time payment. Some school scholarships offer money to students each semester or academic year and are renewable.
Students might get a cheque in their name for the money directly. In other instances, the student’s school receives the funding. When that occurs, the student would then reimburse the institution for any remaining tuition, fees, housing, and board costs. The remaining funds are returned to the student if scholarships and other kinds of financial help are sufficient to cover direct education expenditures.
These scholarships will hopefully help those with financial constraints who have just completed their 12th/HSC boards exams and dream to pursue higher education in different streams.
Here are some scholarships for students to apply for by March, 2023.
