British PM David Cameron recently announced 60 new jubilee scholarships to be awarded in India this year.

The scholars will receive full funding for a one-year masters course in the UK, starting September.
Funded by the British Council and the UK government, the scholarships have been launched as part of the celebrations for the Queen's diamond jubilee.

The aim is to enable exceptional talent from across India to come and study masters courses in business administration, manufacturing, science or technology.

The awards will be open to applicants from all over India, and the scheme aims to include students from every Indian state among the awardees.

Mr Rob Lynes, British Council's director in India, said, "A scholarship is a fitting way to mark the occasion of the diamond jubilee, as it is the creation of new opportunity - not just for the student, but for the host institution to benefit from Indian ideas, for new friendships to be made and new links to be created and fostered between us”
