Post Graduate Scholarship Program [PGSP]

KEI- Post Graduate Scholarship Program [KEI-PGSP] is offered by Kashmir Education Initiative on an annual basis and was started in 2012-13. This is a merit cum means scholarship that is meant to support the education of highly competitive students who have financial constraints that may otherwise hamper their education. To qualify for this scholarship, the prospective students must have done very well in their previous Board/ University exams. In addition, they must have already obtained admissions in any post-graduate courses in Kashmir (Kashmir University, Central University of Kashmir, IUST, SKUAST) at the time of the submission of their applications to KEI. Applications are generally invited at the start of the academic session in Kashmir. After a rigorous selection process (which consists of three rounds), we select about 10-15 students/year, who are offered scholarship as well as mentorship. The students are expected to do really well in their courses and the scholarship is continued in the second year only if they do well in their university exams. The purpose of this scholarship is to enable the financially weak but brilliant students to compete with the best students and achieve excellence in their careers at national and international levels
