The JN Tata Endowment for the Higher Education of Indians has been helping Indian students since 1892 with loan scholarships for higher studies. People consider it a matter of great pride to be called a ‘JN Tata Scholar’. There are now more than 5,365 JN Tata Scholars all over the world.

Students in the final year of the degree course and those awaiting results are eligible to apply.
