Scholarships play a critical role in the growth of young India. Not only do they provide financial support to students, who may have otherwise found finance to be a concern in continuing their education. They also promote curiosity and love of learning among students, who get a different platform to test their mettle. Government scholarship tests, as well as scholarship tests by private foundations both help in encouraging and promoting education for all.
