In celebration of the nation's 75th anniversary of independence, the UK government said on Wednesday that it has teamed with companies in India to give 75 fully financed scholarships for Indian students to study in Britain beginning in September.
The number of fully supported scholarships awarded by the UK for the one-year master's degree is at its highest level to date. One of the companies sponsoring this unique project is Duolingo, together with HSBC, Pearson India, Hindustan Unilever, Tata Sons, and others.
Programs available include Chevening scholarships for a one-year master's degree, with the option to study any topic at any accredited British university.
For more than 12,000 courses at more than 150 UK institutions, the British Council in India is providing 18 scholarships for women studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Six English scholarships are also being provided by the British Council.
As part of the 75 scholarships, HSBC India will fund 15 of them, Pearson India will fund two, Hindustan Unilever, Tata Sons, and Duolingo will each fund one.
The "Chevening HSBC Scholarship," according to HSBC CEO Hitendra Dave, aims to support young people who have the potential to lead and make decisions by utilising top-notch educational resources.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson commended the "India/UK Together" initiative that fosters cultural relations between the two sides during his recent summit visit to India. One of the main tenets of the "living bridge" that unites individuals from the UK and India is education.
According to the British high commission, about 108,000 student visas were granted to Indians in the year that ended in March 2022, more than quadruple the amount from the previous year.
Since 1983, 150 nations have participated in the international honours programme known as Chevening
