About the JN Tata Endowment Scholarships
The JN Tata Endowment was set up in 1892 by Jamsetji Tata, Founder of the Tata group, to encourage young people to take up higher studies at some of the best universities in the world. It is the first Tata benefaction in the field of education, and possibly the first of its kind in the world.
For the past 120 years the endowment has been helping scholars of merit realise their dreams of getting a world-class education through its loan scholarship programme. Annually, the endowment selects around 120 Indian scholars for higher studies abroad. Over the years several JN Tata scholars have distinguished themselves in various walks of life.
The endowment awards only loan scholarships. However, the selected scholars may also qualify for a gift award. The amount to be awarded to each scholar by way of loan and gift scholarship is determined on the basis of norms laid down for the purpose, and does not cover the full cost of studies. Scholarships are granted for higher studies in all disciplines and subjects.
