India is well known as an education hub attracting international students from all over the world. India’s robust education system, in the backdrop of its rich diversity and vibrant culture &history, affords a broad range of options for students. And as a rapidly growing country with a leading technological edge, studying in India has so much to offer, whether it is Engineering, Computers, Arts, Philosophy, Political Sciences or Classics etc.
Indian Council for Cultural Relations administers various scholarship programs annually and awards about 3000+ scholarships under 26 different schemes to foreign students from about 140 countries. Amongst these 26 schemes, six are funded by ICCR from its grant and others are administered on behalf of Ministry of External Affairs and Ministry of Ayush. The courses offered for studies are for Under-graduation, Post-graduation and Ph.D. levels. Most of the scholarship holders come from developing countries in Asia, Africa, South and Central America.
In a step forward towards “Digital India”, ICCR developed the “Admissions to Alumni (A2A) Portal" to streamline the enrollment process. With the introduction of the portal from the academic year 2018-19 onwards, ICCR Scholarship programs are not only digitized but also have become an effortless exercise. The portal contains all relevant information regarding ICCR sponsored scholarship schemes and other information like names of the Indian Universities, courses offered by them and guidelines of scholarship schemes etc.
