British Council delighted to announce the British Council IELTS Scholarship Award for 2011. The 2010 scholarship program was very successful and the recipients are thrilled to have received scholarships.
The British Council IELTS Scholarship Award was launched with the objective of assisting Indian students intending to study at universities abroad. Keeping with its mission to promote the global sharing of knowledge and ideas, IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the world’s leading English language test designed to evaluate ability to communicate in English for education, immigration and professional accreditation worldwide.
Eight successful scholarship award winners will receive an award of Rs. 3,00,000/- each towards the cost of tuition fees. The award winners will begin a full time postgraduate programme at any overseas university that uses IELTS as a part of its admission requirements and as a reliable measure of English language proficiency.
The British Council IELTS is immensely popular with Indian students. IELTS is recognised by over 6,000 institutions in 125 countries worldwide as reliable measure of English skills. The choice of universities is wide for Indian students with over 2500 institutions and programmes in the US alone, accepting IELTS. The scholarship programme directly benefits both individuals and the countries from which they come, while at the same time promoting higher education links India and other countries. Scholarships are also being awarded in three other Asian countries with a total investment of Ł60,000 / US$90,000 / Rs. 42,00,000.”
