College Board, in association with selected Indian universities, has launched SAT scholarships under the banner of the College Board India Scholars Program. Under the scholarship programme, the high performers in the SAT exam from India will be recognized for their achievement and the low-income, high-achieving students will receive full-tuition waiver as scholarship from top Indian Universities that are part of India Global Alliance.
Formed by College Board, the US-based organization that publishes and manages the SAT, the India Global Alliance is a consortium of educational institutions in India and abroad. The Alliance provides a platform to Indian educational institutions to engage with some of the world’s most prominent and high-profile universities like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of Cambridge, Columbia University, McGill University, the University of Hong Kong, among others.
To encourage Indian students to take the SAT, the College Board has also partnered with Buddy4Study to provide up to 100% SAT fee reduction for March, May, October and December test admins for students in India.
The following universities are among the ten founding members of the India Global Alliance that will accept SAT for admissions:
