This post is only for Indian students, and we are focusing on scholarships from the Indian government that supports Indian students. Again, this post is not for every international student, but only students from India can benefit from this post. Sorry to say, to all international students, but there are plenty more posts that you can find on our website at

Government Scholarships for Indian Students

These scholarships are offered by the Ministry of Human Resource Development and by the Department of Higher Education of India, and most scholarships are for graduate programs. Some of these scholarships are offered by foreign nations to Indian nationals, and others are offered by the Indian government themselves.

Since the offers change every year and different countries offer different ranges of scholarships, it is important to check your scholarship out at the official homepage before applying. Let’s talk about some of the available scholarships for 2019-2020, and these scholarships will disappear during this year since they are only for the school year 2019-2020.

  • Application from Indian nationals who are already studying abroad is not considered.
  • Indian nationals who are studying abroad for more than six months are eligible to apply only if they have returned to India and resided for two years after studying abroad.
