Did you know that ETS offers scholarships to outstanding students in India? Each year, the makers of the TOEFL test award 10 scholarships to 10 different students valued at US $7,000 each! This seems like a good opportunity for all you Magooshers living in India, so I thought I’d share.
The deadline for this year’s application is August 3, 2015. You can see the full details on this page, and I’ll summarize them below. 🙂
The selection process happens in 2 phases. First, you need to be eligible for the award. You must live in India, start a degree program between June 2015 and May 2016, have a GPA of 80 or higher on a 100-point scale, or 3.0 on a 4-point scale, and have a valid TOEFL score.
Based on your initial application and eligibility, 100 semifinalists will move on to the next round. In this round, the scholarship committee will consider things like: your ability to communicate in English, your leadership skills, your extracurriculars, and your essays.
If you want to apply, go here. Good luck! 🙂
