25 Indian scholars to receive UK India TOEFL scholarships for pursuing education in UK

ETS, the educational testing and assessment organisation and the National Indian Students and Alumni Union (NISAU) have partnered to launch and announce the ‘UK-India TOEFL® Scholarship’ for Indian students. This scholarship is a part of India@75, ETS@75, and the celebration of India-UK ties. This scholarship programme will support 25 Indian scholars who wish to pursue their undergraduate or postgraduate studies at a university in UK. The scholarships aim to provide financial support for various college expenses, and not just limited to tuition, books, housing deposits, and transportation. A selection panel comprising NISAU, UK university representatives, and industry bodies will choose the scholarship winners. To apply for the scholarship, interested applicants must submit their TOEFL® test scorecard, a 500-word essay on ‘Creating a social impact with a UK-based Education’, and their personal and academic achievements. The application deadline for Indian students to apply for this scholarship is May 31, 2023.

To be eligible for the scholarship, all applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • A minimum TOEFL® test score of 75 out of 120

  • An offer letter from a UK university

  • Intending to study on a fee-paying undergraduate or postgraduate taught degree level course

  • Enrolling for the first time at a UK university

Sanam Arora, chairperson, NISAU, says, “It has been a longstanding dream for the NISAU to be able to provide scholarships to Indian students who wish to use their British education for creating positive social impact and give back to society. With ETS’s support, we are absolutely delighted to be able to offer $75,000 worth of scholarships to 25 young Indians who will hopefully become the change-makers of tomorrow. We are delighted to be able to play a small role in addressing the inequity that can often stop the best and brightest students from securing world-class UK education.”
