These scholarships intend to provide financial assistance for various expenses related to college that may include but not be limited to books, tuition, housing deposits and transportation. 

The scholarship selection panel will comprise NISAU, UK university representatives, and industry representatives who would select the winners. The students can apply for UK-India TOEFL Scholarships within May 31, 2023.

NISAU Chairperson Sanam Arora, who was recently appointed as a Commissioner of the UK’s International Higher Education Commission, expressed her excitement about the launch of the scholarships. She mentioned that it has been a long-standing dream for NISAU and herself to provide scholarships to Indian students who intend to use their British education to create a positive social impact and contribute to society. 

With the support of ETS, the organization is thrilled to offer scholarships worth USD 75,000 to 25 Indian scholarships that can bear the flag of change for tomorrow. They are excited to be able to contribute in a small way to address the inequality persistent in the international education sector that prevents bright students from achieving education in the UK.
