Scholarships For Indian Students
to Study Abroad
Scholarships for your Study Abroad Dreams
Scholarships plays an important role for anyone who wants to pursue education overseas. The cost of higher studies in a foreign country is a huge burden on both student and their parents. Scholarships are a huge relief in taking away a part of the financial burden. If you are an Indian student who wish to study abroad and do not have enough money to accomplish our dream then you must read this. Anyone who wants to study in a foreign country are eligible to apply for a number of scholarships given out by government, universities and private organizations. However, due to lack of information about all the possible scholarships available, many students miss out on applying for scholarships that could have been received. This page is dedicated to all such students who are unaware of the numerous scholarships available. We have tried to list down every possible international scholarship for Indian students headed for higher studies at a popular foreign Universities.
Types of Scholarships for Indian Students for Overseas Education
1. Merit-Based Scholarships: Merit scholarships are a type of financial aid for qualified students. Many providers offer merit scholarships to students who have high grades, athletic ability or artistic talent. These scholarships take into account a student’s exceptional achievement in any of the above fields. Most Universities offer such scholarships to deserving students who have demonstrated their achievements in these fields.
2. Need-Based Scholarship: Many universities award students who have a financial need. Students qualify for need-based scholarships based on their family’s income. Still, many need-based scholarships take into account an applicant’s grades and test scores. Applicants with great academics and financial need have many opportunities for such scholarships.
3. Country-Specific Scholarships: Many governments, public authorities, or universities award scholarships to students belonging to a particular country. For example, The United States-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), in a bid to promote “ understanding between the people of the United States and India through an academic and cultural exchange ” offers Fulbright-Nehru fellowships, Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship, etc. for Indian students studying in the U.S.A.
4. College-Specific Scholarships: These scholarships are specific to individual colleges. These are awarded only to Indian students pursuing any program in that specific college. These scholarships are highly competitive and students are awarded this based on their academic performance, overall profile, personal achievements in any field, etc.
5. Student-Specific Scholarships: These are scholarships that are given to students with distinct characteristics – belonging to a certain gender, race, religion, medical history, etc. This varies from college to college and is targeted towards minority group students, who face some sort of disadvantage at some level, in a bid to give them equal opportunities.
Who can apply for scholarships?
Anyone who meets the requirements can apply. It looks very obvious but it’s very important. There are different types of scholarships and they have different requirements because they target different types of students. You need to check if you fit into that requirement or not. Application start date and end date are very important and try to apply as soon as possible, as most of the scholarships are given on a first come first serve basis.
These are some of the most common application requirements for scholarships:
registration or application form
letter of motivation or personal essay
letter of recommendation
letter of acceptance from an academic institution
proof of low income, official financial statements
proof of extraordinary academic or athletic achievement
How can you apply for a scholarship?
After finding the scholarships that you can apply for, start preparing your documents and get some expert help to make sure you are well prepared. A typical scholarship process looks like this:
Do the registration. Mostly it’s done by filling an online form.
You will receive a confirmation email so keep checking your inbox.
You will need to write a personal statement or an essay. Whether you will get the scholarship or not, depends on this. So get professional help and try your best to be original and impress through your unique ideas and experiences.
Get official proof of your achievements. Make sure to translate the document into English
Get official proof of your low income or nationality (for region-based scholarships). Again, a translation might be necessary
Proofread all documents for errors. You can do it by yourself or get an experienced person to do it for you. Send all documents to the scholarship provider.
Submit the acceptance letter from the university. You won’t receive the scholarship without confirming that you will actually begin your studies.
Wait for the results. If selected, congratulations, you’re a winner! Go ahead and throw a party but don’t spend all your scholarship money on it. Just kidding;

Your counsellor is just one click away!
I very much appreciate your consulting service and I personally felt like a friend helping me throughout my way to move forward for my higher studies in the UK and I have been followed up on each and every step from the beginning to now and Seger Overseas is ready to help me out at any point of time. Thank you for your wonderful service without any hesitations.
When I first decided to do my PG abroad, I was looking for options and all other formalities for admission. When I approached Seger Overseas on this matter, they gave me a clear idea of all aspects and helped me with the process. The best part is, I did not have to keep checking on them for updates during the process as they clearly tell how long it is going to take and keep updating regularly. From Day 1 until the day I got my visa, they handled everything very well, and in a timely manner. I highly recommend Seger Overseas to all the aspiring students who want to study abroad.
Right from picking the university to obtaining my visa, Mr.Ramesh had helped me every step of the way. The other staff members from Seger had helped me in the document verification process which would have been impossible for me if I had to do it myself. With all the help and guidance from Seger, I have landed in Dublin in September 2019 and I am currently pursuing my Masters at Dublin City University. I thank Mr.Ramesh and Seger for the service you provided and I wish you and your team all the best in guiding more aspiring students to meet their goals.
I would like to thank Ramesh and Seger Overseas for their help during my student visa application process for the UK. Without Ramesh, I wonder if it would have been possible for me to sail smoothly through the visa application process. He has technically handheld my visa application process throughout each step. I would recommend Seger Overseas for their enthusiasm, friendly approach and the ease of working with them.
They provide a vast majority of the courses and well-ranked universities. They did not pressurize me to choose any particular course or university. They gave me complete information from start to end which helped me a lot to choose this university. I like to thank Mr. Ramesh who is the manager of the company, for helping me from selecting the university up to booking the ticket for the United kingdom. Through them, I did not feel any sort of pressure to do the college application and the visa process. They also helped me to find financial resources for the course. I strongly believe that the chosen university will shape my future career.
I was trying to get into a top UK university so I decided to apply through overseas education intermediates. I went through many education consultants but failed to achieve my expectations. Finally, I got in touch with Seger Overseas and got the right guidance. I have seen their involvement and helping nature which was absolutely magnificent. Now I have offers of letters from three reputed universities. From the start, they were helping me as much as possible. They have been available for me at any time. I am so thankful to the Seger Overseas team for guiding me throughout the process.
Had a great experience here. Ramesh sir professionally handled my complicated case and guided me on the best path and helped me transition to the UK in a good university. They personally understood my needs and my profile. I tried 3 other consultancies before this who did not help me enough. But at Seger overseas, everything was handled quickly and thoroughly which helped me get The UK Visa. I would definitely recommend any prospective student to choose Seger Overseas for admissions for their education.
