The highly selective scholarship programme receives about 25,000 applications every year, with a 5 per cent  selection rate.

Nandini has recently completed an integrated masters course in developmental studies from IIT-Madras.“Hailing from a very traditional and middle-class family, I could not afford the exorbitant tuition fees and living costs in Europe.
