Youth forms a large chunk of India’s population, with the majority being students (school-level, undergraduate-level, postgraduate-level, doctorate-level). Clearly, this means that the education sector is one of the biggest sectors in our country. India has a student population of 315 million, which is the highest in the world. But with the cost of education increasing tremendously, many capable students often fail to fulfil their dream for higher studies.
The government does its best to provide support to such deserving students in the form of various scholarships and incentives. The need for scholarships is critical for such a huge student pool. There are a number of scholarships available to students at different levels. The problem comes in finding all these scholarships. Students miss out on many beneficial schemes owing to a communication gap between scholarship providers and seekers. This is when the scholarship portals come into play.
