The scholarships will be open to Indian nationals who are residents of India and are based in the country at the time of applying.

To apply for the programme, applicants must demonstrate the potential to rise to positions of leadership and influence. Candidates will need to demonstrate the personal, intellectual, and interpersonal attributes reflecting this potential.  

“I am delighted that TVS Motor Company is partnering with the Chevening Scholarship Programme; Chevening offers a unique, fully funded opportunity to experience the UK and study in some of the best institutions in the world.
