A country can progress only when every child receives the basic education they deserve, especially those who are financially handicapped and seek assistance. And this is exactly the K.C.Mahindra Scholarship programme aims at. Founded nearly 60 years ago, in 1956, this scholarship is aimed at Indian students who dream about pursuing their postgraduate degree in foreign countries.

The trustees of the scholarship provide an interest free loan to the applicants. The scholarship amount awarded is maximum of Rs 4 Lakhs per candidate, except 3 K.C. Mahindra fellow scholars who receive 8 Lakhs each. 

K.C. Mahindra Scholarship application pre-requisites

  • The applicant must have passed his undergraduate degree or an equivalent degree with a first class and the course should be completed in a recognized Indian university.
  • The applicant should have secured admission in a reputed university. 
  • The admission should be for a course that starts in September or February.
  • If the applicant is a final year student who is pursuing his studies, he is still eligible to apply as long as he is able to provide his final year certificate by end of June.

The application forms are available at the K.C.Mahindra Education Trust which is situated in Mumbai. You can download the forms at and should submit in the specified format.
