SAT Scholarships: College Board India Scholars Program

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.

Being a part of the Alliance, the participating universities will offer scholarships to the top performers in SAT, based on their financial need.

To encourage Indian students to take the SAT, College Board has also partnered with Buddy4Study to provide up to 100% SAT fee reduction for December 2018 and March 2019 test admin for students in India.
