Under the program, interest-free loan scholarships will be awarded to students who have secured admission or have applied for admission in reputable foreign universities for courses commencing from August 2023 but not later than February 2024. A maximum of INR 10 lakh per scholar will be conferred to the top 3 students who will be awarded as K.C. Mahindra Fellows. Additionally, scholarships of INR 5 lakh will be awarded to the remaining successful applicants.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must have a consistently good academic record, and should have applied for admission to a post-graduate program in an accredited institution abroad. Shortlisted candidates will be called for an interview, and the final selection will be made based on their academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and financial need.
Sheetal Mehta, Senior Vice President – CSR, Mahindra Group said, “Our scholarship program aims to identify and support talented Indian students who have the potential to make a significant contribution to their chosen field of study. We believe that providing financial assistance to such students will not only help them achieve their academic goals but also help build a better future for our country.”
The K.C. Mahindra Education Trust has been awarding the scholarship for higher education abroad since 1956. In 2022, a total of INR 315 lakh as scholarships was awarded to 60 meritorious students as part of this scholarship program.
