The search ends here: Indian government scholarships for studying abroad

“You are only as limited as your efforts.”

How often do you wonder what would it be like to study abroad? How often do you find yourself envisioning a life shaped by the exposure that foreign education can provide, only to be hit by reality and ending up with self-consolation? Because let’s face it, despite the well-known importance of education and subsequent efforts to make it more accessible, it still remains an expensive affair; the education abroad more so.

Considering the modest per capita income of our country, only an exclusive group of people can afford the high costs of foreign education. Most of the common folks like us need to extensively plan our expenditure and take the help of bank loans to enable such an opportunity. Now you would be wondering why this man is rubbing salts on our wounds and telling us what we already know. Well, hear me out. There are a number of scholarship providers that work for enabling deserving students an opportunity to study abroad. Here I have provided a comprehensive list of Indian government scholarships for studying abroad.

The problem

As I said, there are a plethora of scholarship providers. Government organisations, non-government organisations, corporates, financial and educational institutions, all contribute their bit in making education more accessible. On the other side, there is no dearth of students who could benefit from these scholarships. So, it should be pretty simple, right? Well, not really. The problem lies in the fact that there is a huge communication gap between the two. Most of the students are unaware of the scholarship opportunities that are available to them. This prevents the proper utilisation of these schemes and leads to wastage of resources, both human and financial.

The solution

This is where Buddy4Study comes in. Buddy4Study is India’s largest scholarship network and it has made a significant contribution in bridging the communication gap between scholarship seekers and providers by bringing them on a single platform. Using Buddy4Study, the students can easily find, apply and track the scholarships matching their eligibility. Buddy4Study also provides application support and education loan services.

So, I say it is high time you start giving preference to your dreams and not be constrained by these insignificant hurdles like finance. Afterall, you are only as limited as your efforts. Foreign education doesn’t seem so far-fetched now. Does it? Why don’t you start your efforts from here itself? Check out these major Indian government scholarships for studying abroad.
