What: The Inlaks Shivdasani Scholarship is open for 2011 applications. The scholarships are for courses, at top institutes, for 2 years, in either the US, UK, or Europe in all kinds of subjects.

The scholarship will cover tuition fees, adequate living expenses, and one-way travel.

You must already have secured prior admission to the institution and the course chosen. The institutions concerned must only be top rank. Candidates must be below the age of 30 on July 1, 2011, and should not have started their programme already. 

Preference will be given to candidates who have not studied abroad so far in the past. Awards of other grants, teaching assistantships, and support from other sources will be regarded as a positive factor.

Who cannot apply: You are not eligible to apply if you plan to pursue Engineering, Computer Science, Urban Planning, Business Studies, Medicine, Public Health, Indian History, Indian Studies, Fashion Design, Music or Film Animation. In the case of PhD programmes with collaborating institutes, scholarships may be extended up to 4 years.
