KEI Scholarship Details

The following scholarship will be provided to the candidates in this scholarship scheme presented by the organization in Kashmir:-

  • Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGS)
    • KEI’s Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGS) offers scholarships to students from disadvantaged backgrounds who with their hard work excel in National and State level competitive tests like JEE for Engineering and NEET for medical colleges and are finally selected for professional courses in Engineering, Medical, and Agriculture
    • The program offers-
      • Scholarship support, Guidance for future plans, and Connectivity between the previous and new scholars.
    • KEI’S Undergraduate program started in 2014. It has supported 45 scholars so far with 10 scholars each in 2015 and 2016. In 2017 the program has 15 scholars.
    • KEI’s undergraduate scholarship program selects 10-15 scholars per year from disadvantaged backgrounds. The selection process is primarily based on merit which includes an aggregate of 25% marks in 10th, 25% marks in 12th, and 50% score in the competitive entrance test.
  • KEI Pre-doctoral Scholarship (KEI-PDS)
    • KEI-PDS is a merit-based scholarship offered to academically outstanding students studying at the Master’s level in different Universities/Institutes in Kashmir. The award assists the students in exploring the possibility of receiving their M.S/Ph.D. in the United States. The award will have financial and informational support components. The financial provisions of this scholarship will go directly in sponsoring the attempts of needy talented students to secure admission to Ph.D. programs in the United States. The informational component of this award will guide talented students (irrespective of their financial stature) in the application process for securing admissions.
    • There are three main junctures where students need financial assistance. The first two are the exams: Graduate Research Examination (GRE) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) are mandatory for application to almost all Ph.D. programs in the United States. The third is during the actual application process when the student finally has to pay the university application fee, which often poses a daunting economic obstacle.
    • KEI provides assistance at and along all three junctures. The selection is primarily based on merit at the board/university level and a strong Curriculum Vitae (CV) supported with a 500-1000 word statement of purpose, briefing the student’s interest in the intended field of study (this is important as it is also one of the selection criteria in US graduate programs and will help us evaluate the student). 
    • The shortlisted candidates will be asked to sit in the GRE-style pre-screening test to be held at Kashmir University (or any other place designated at that time).
    • Followed by an Interview of the shortlisted candidates. The cumulative score is taken from all three rounds for the final score which includes their academic score as well.
    • Nine scholars have been selected for the PDS 2017 session. Two scholars have already applied for GRE and TOEFL. The plan of action is being prepared for the rest of the scholars for mentoring and guidance.
