While it is unlikely that you will receive a completely financed scholarship, you can search for scholarships that will pay the majority of your costs. Here is a list of the top 5 scholarships, along with a description of all they cover.
Funded by the UK government, the scholarship rewards up to £18,000 (INR 18,00,000). The acceptance rate for the Chevening Scholarship is around 3%. As an example in 2019, of the 63000 applicants, only 1800 were awarded the scholarship.
Fulbright Nehru Master’s fellowship
The scholarship covers - a J-1 USA student visa support facility, economic class flight fares (round trip from the student’s hometown to the institution in the USA), 75%tuition fees, accident and sickness coverage as per the U.S. Government guidelines.
The scholarship is awarded to just 4000 international students each year.
Vanier Graduate Scholarships
Funded by the Canadian government, this scholarship grants CAD 50000 which is roughly 30 Lakhs INR. While the number of scholarships granted is 166, they have a pretty competitive review process, making it tough for you to get into that number of 166 selected students.
Apart from the tuition fees, it covers airfare from the home country to the UK and return. The UK government also gives you a living allowance worth GBP 1084 per month. But the catch here is that this scholarship is awarded to ONLY 700 students each year, and the no. of applications is easily 90 Thousand to a Lakh.
Charles Wallace India Trust Scholarship
Only 10 long term grants are awarded each year which cover tuition fees, and will also contribute GBP 600 towards your international travel. But do you see, just 10 grants a year!
As previously said, these scholarships have a quite low acceptance rate, so you need to be certain that your profile satisfies their standards. Not all schools in a country will accept a single award, and different countries provide various scholarships. The argument is that the scholarships accepted would differ between nations, universities, programmes, etc.
So factors like your desired country, school, program, all of it will help you find the right scholarship for you.
