UK Announces 99 Scholarships For Indians

To celebrate India’s 75th year of Independence, the Britisg government has partnered with leading businesses in India to offer 75 fully funded scholarships for Indian students to study in the UK.

This is the highest number of fully funded scholarships given for the one-year master’s programme to date.

HSBC, Pearson India, Hindustan Unilever, Tata Sons and Duolingo are supporting this special initiative to benefit Indian students.

Of the 75 scholarships, HSBC India will fund 15 scholarships, Pearson India will sponsor two and Hindustan Unilever, Tata Sons and Duolingo will sponsor one each.

The programmes on offer include Chevening scholarships for a one-year master’s programme, with the opportunity to study any subject at any recognised UK university.
