This is a diverse group of scholars as they are from varying disciplines of study, from nearly all the states of India and with girls and boys being equally represented. We congratulate every selected scholar, and we are confident that they will build a strong future for themselves while contributing to India’s progress.”

Selected students this year come from a variety of academic disciplines, including engineering/technology, science, medicine, commerce, the arts, business/management, computer applications, law, education, hospitality, architecture, and other professional degrees.
