As part of our 70th anniversary in India celebrations, we awarded fully-funded scholarships to 100 Indian women to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects at UK's premier, higher education institutions.
This scholarship programme is part of our endeavour to be a partner in India's economic growth, and to meet the knowledge ambitions of states across India. The 100 women scholars will be attending 44 British universities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland for their Master's courses during the 2018-19 academic year.
The scholarships will offer the women the chance to work in world-class research environments and collaborate in international research teams. Selected from across India from Tier I, II and III cities and districts, the scholars were also provided a training by the British Council to enable them to create an impact of their work in STEM through effective use of social media and science communication.
Meet our bright changemakers!
