The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) has announced the offering of scholarships to foreign nationals, for the academic year 2021-22, under the General Scholarship Scheme and the Scholarship Scheme for Indian Culture
A. General Scholarship Scheme
The Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) is offering one scholarship to Greek Nationals every year under the General Scholarship Scheme for Undergraduate, Postgraduate degrees and for pursuing Ph.D. research at Indian universities. Last date for submission of applications 30 May 2021. Read more HERE
B. Scholarship Scheme for Indian Culture
This scholarship scheme was known until last academic year as “Scholarship scheme for Dance and music”. Due to its narrow scope limited to Indian dance and music and, more importantly, no provision for international airfare, the scheme was grossly under-utilized. ICCR has, therefore, decided to expand the scope of the scholarship scheme by renaming it as “ICCR Scholarship Scheme for Indian Culture” encompassing wider facets of Indian culture not just limited to dance and music but also to performing art, theatre, sculpture, Indian cuisine, etc. The scholarship will also provide international airfare to students. In all, there are 100 slots available for global applicants under this scholarship. Read more HERE
The admission applications from interested students is invited online through ICCR’s A2A Scholarship Portal http://a2ascholarships.iccr.gov.in . The A2A Scholarship Portal will be operational from 15th March 2021 and contains all the relevant information for the applicants including details of all State Universities, Central Universities and Institutes, courses available, applications guidelines, eligibility criteria and other relevant information for helping the applicants in decision-making while applying for the academic courses of their preference.
