The Lore Foundation, India, announces scholarship 2014, which is open to Indian students studying in classes X, XI and XII. Over 100 students will be identified for scholarships through a learning aptitude test (LAT). The total amount of scholarship on offer under the programme is Rs 5 crore.
Eligibility: The applicant must be a citizen or permanent resident of India and should be planning to pursue an undergraduate programme from a recognised and accredited Indian or foreign university in any discipline.

After the lapse of seven years period, the unused amount of the scholarship would revert to Lore India scholarship programme. It will be paid directly to the educational institute.
Apart from the cash award, the student will also be part of a mentorship programme where the selected scholars will undergo a comprehensive psychometric analysis/interest schedule on the basis of which they will be counseled and guided for their further studies like pursuing undergraduate education in any discipline in an Indian or foreign university, and for preparation of an entrance exam required for admission into any undergraduate courses.
