The UK has announced the Great Britain Scholarships – India 2015 and GREAT Scholarships Guide as part of the ‘Great Britain’ campaign. Launched in February 2012, GREAT is a strategic international marketing programme designed to promote the UK to business, tourism and student markets worldwide in order to enhance the country’s global reputation. With almost 400 scholarships this year, and over 750 in the last two years, the GREAT Britain Scholarships – India 2015 is the largest ever scholarships programme offered to Indian students. The scholarships for the current year are worth almost 1.5 million pounds (approximately RS. 15 crore).
In addition, the British Council has also launched the GREAT Scholarships Guide 2015, which has been designed to assist students with their scholarship search and addresses some of the important aspects that students need to keep in mind while applying. Indian students applying for undergraduate courses in the UK continue to grow, owing to a conducive environment they get to study and live. As many as 57 institutions across England, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland are participating in this programme. Scholarships are tenable for September 2015 and January 2016 intakes.
