Inlaks Foundation not only offers scholarships but also a host of other awards
If you have a good academic record and you are keen to pursue your studies further but the only thing that stands in your way is money — worry no more. There are a slew of scholarships that provide opportunities to young aspirants — one such is the Inlaks Scholarship,
The Inlaks Foundation was founded by Indoo Shivdasani in 1976. The son of a member of the Indian Civil Service, who was educated both in India and the UK, Shivdasanis immense faith in the fact that higher education in world-renowned universities like
Oxford and Cambridge could go a long way in nurturing and devel¬oping young Indian talent prompted him to set up this scholarship scheme.
This scholarship is of two kinds — university courses and specific programmes. The former offers scholarships for up to two years at top American, European and UK institutions, for degrees in all subjects, except Engineering, Computer Sciences, Management, English Literature, Indian History, Urban Design and Philosophy; while the latter provides scholarships for research, training or professional improvement to be carried out either independently, or attached to a leading institution abroad.
The scholarship takes care of tuition fees, living expenses and one-way travel. Those opting for courses lasting for more than two years (that is, Ph.D.) will have to seek funding from other sources..
• The offer is open to all Indian citizens of either sex who hold a degree from a recognised university and are resident in India.
• One should have prior admission to the top ranking institution.
• Applicants must be below 30 years of age on the first of July in the year of application. Preference is usually given to candidates who have not yet studied abroad.
• The award of other grants, teaching assistantships and support from other sources for the proposed programme is regarded as a positive factor. The Foundation also encourages applications from young employed people.
Application forms are available from January 10 to April 15 from Inlaks Foundation, P.O. Box 2108, Delhi -7. Last date of submission is April 15. Full details of the institutes financial requirements should be furnished. After initial screening, selected candidates are called for interviews — which usually take place in Delhi at the end of May, in two stages: preliminary and final.
