Every year, the university enrolls hundreds of international students in its undergraduate, postgraduate, Ph.D., and diploma programs.
Banaras Hindu University, an Institution of Excellence under the Education Ministry’s IoE program, has launched a new scholarship program. Similarly, the “Scholarship to International Students” program seeks to attract and encourage more international students to enroll.
The Motive Behind The Initiative
Under the initiative, foreign students will receive Rs 6,000 per month, which will be renewed annually based on their performance.
Students who are currently receiving lower-value scholarships will be eligible for the difference.
Under the chairmanship of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sudhir K Jain, the Governing Body of Institution of Eminence, BHU, decided to introduce a “Scholarship to International Students.”
Vice-Chancellor Professor Sudhir K Jain has stated that the university community must endeavor to place BHU among the best universities in the world. This scholarship program is one of several initiatives aimed at achieving this goal.
About The BHU Scholarship
The program is expected to increase the number of overseas students at BHU.
Students who have one or more scholarships at the time of admission and a monthly income of less than Rs 6000/- will be given a stipend of a different amount.
Furthermore, it is in the spirit of the National Education Policy 2020, which places a higher emphasis on the internationalization of the Indian Education System by bringing more international students to Indian universities.
