The college is inviting the cream of students from India who fall under the eligible criteria’s of the program. The form for the same can be downloaded from British Council’s official website.
The scholarship promises to take the initiative of handling the student’s fees, airfare and a monthly stipend including the UK visa charges.

British Council has come forward and stepped in the shoes of taking initiative in order to help the students with the program.
