The oval-shaped state of Manipur is known for its exotic landscape – gentle blue hills, lush valleys, lakes, plentiful rivers, and deep forests. True to its name, the ‘Jewelled State’ is a jewel in the crown of Incredible India, being one of the most sought-after-and-yet-affordable travel destinations for nature lovers in the country.
For young Manipuris, though, the lack of access to top-quality higher education within the state necessitates their migration to the mainland. To encourage students to pursue higher education and aid the development of the state, there are many scholarship schemes that provide financial support to deserving candidates.
