What is Tata Scholarship - Cornell University, NY 2015?

Thanks to a generous gift from the Tata Education and Development Trust - a philanthropic affiliate of India’s Tata Group - a $25 million endowment has been established that will allow Cornell to provide financial aid to undergraduate students from India.

The Tata Scholarship Fund will support approximately 20 scholars at any given time and will ensure that the very best Indian students have access to Cornell, regardless of their financial circumstances. The scholarship will be awarded annually; recipients will receive the scholarship for the duration of their undergraduate studies at Cornell.

Ratan Tata ’59, BArch ’62, is a Cornell trustee and the chairman of Tata Sons, the holding company of the Tata Group, one of India’s oldest, largest, and most respected business conglomerates. Mr. Tata is one of the most respected business leaders in the world and has received numerous prestigious honors recognizing his impact through his work and philanthropy.

  • be a citizen of India and have attended secondary school in India;
  • be offered admission to Cornell as an undergraduate student;
  • be eligible for need-based financial aid.
