Engineering seems to be a much sought-after career aspiration for students in India. Out of ten, every third person aims at becoming an engineer. Though your fields may differ, but on a broader platform, engineers do form a strong base, not only within India but also abroad. However, it is also a fact that pursuing an engineering program accrues a huge financial load on both the students as well as their parents.
Considering the burden that an engineering program creates on students, here I present to you some of the key scholarships for engineering students offered by various institutions as well as organizations.
Introduced by the Shoolini University, the SEST Shoolini Engineering Scholarship Test is an opportunity for students who are either currently studying in class 12 or have passed their class 12 and are willing to join an engineering program at Shoolini University. Being a multi-disciplinary non-profit private institution, the university offers scholarship award ranging from INR 30,000 to INR 5,00,000. Since it is a scholarship cum admission test, you have to go through a cut-throat competition to win this scholarship.
A pioneer institution in the field of technical, management and pharmaceutical courses, KIET Group of Institutions in Uttar Pradesh is also one of the most promising engineering college that offers merit-based scholarships to students getting enrolled there. If you are willing to pursue a BTech program there, you need to have passed class 12 with at least 80% marks or above to win up to 15% tuition fee waiver.
Are you a meritorious girl student? Are you willing to pursue a BE/BTech or BArch program? If yes, then you are right person to stand a chance of winning UGAM – Legrand Scholarship of INR 60,000 per annum or 60% of the tuition fee (whichever is less). Yes, you heard it right, this is one exclusive opportunity of scholarships for engineering students studying at any recognized university or college in India.
If you think that a government scholarship is the only option available for students to pursue their higher education. It’s a myth! I have come across a number of private institutions which offer scholarships to promote education by providing financial assistance to deserving students, and Vidyasaarathi is one of them. In collaboration with SNL Bearings Ltd, Vidyasaarathi offers scholarship up to INR 25,000 for 1 year to students pursuing a BE/BTech program. So, you have yet another golden opportunity for you in pursuit of your aspiration.
For all those students who aspire to join an engineering program abroad, Academia Higher Education College, Slovenia offers an excellent scholarship opportunity based on your merit. This scholarship is applicable for courses in Engineering, Business and Media Production. So, if you want to head start your engineering career from an international university, Slovenia is the right place to start with. Going for an international school scholarship will not only create great opportunities of job for you, but also tremendously increase your demand in the global market.
I hope these scholarships will turn out equally helpful for you as they did for me.
