Scholarship for Indians
Importance of fellowships cannot be ignored in today’s world. With the increasingly high prices for living, tuition fees are also getting higher.
Scholarships provide some benefits for recipients. Learning reduces the financial burden of the student and allows him/her to give more time and energy to focus on studies rather than part-time work.
There are many Indians who got a scholarship to continue their study, for example, Indra Nooyi, Kiran Bedi, Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Girish Karnad, Shyam Benegal, etc. Some famous international celebrities who went to school on scholarship include Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Denzel Washington, Edward Hubble, Stephenie Meyer, etc.
