International Scholarships for Indian Undergraduate Students

International Scholarships for Indian Undergraduate Students

Indian students, who make up one of the biggest foreign student populations in the world, often have access to scholarship programs designed with them in mind. There are also an increasing number of grants and scholarships available specifically for Indian undergraduate students; however, many of them are exclusively for graduate-level courses. Although not comprehensive, the list that follows should serve as a jumping-off point and source of inspiration.

Please note that this page is updated yearly, and because the sponsors or institutions that open these scholarships may often change the period in which they accept applications, we may not keep up with these updates due to the volume of scholarships we publish here. Therefore, this page is basically intended to show you the endless opportunities you have to get a scholarship to study anywhere in the world.

A seat at a Cambridge college must first be offered to applicants, and scholarships are given out on a competitive basis.

India’s Oxford and Cambridge Society (UK)

In keeping with the Oxbridge idea, the Oxford and Cambridge Society of India gives scholarships to Indian students. Most of these scholarships are for a specific college at one of the universities. Nonetheless, candidates must have previously earned (or be in the process of earning) a degree from an Indian institution. Scholarships are offered for both undergraduate and graduate study.

Scotland’s Napier University (UK)

Even though there are more and more graduate scholarships for Indian students at UK colleges, there aren’t many undergraduate scholarships for Indian students.
