Candidates need not have the admission/offer letters from the Universities to which they have applied for the academic year 2018-2019 at the time of making the application. Candidates may, therefore, update their application form once they secure admission and submit it again, using the same Login ID
Scholars going abroad for seminars, conferences and undergraduate studies are not eligible for a J. N. Tata Endowment Loan Scholarship
Selection for the Awards
It is a matter of pride to be called a JN Tata Scholar. Staying true to our founder Jamsetjee Nusserwanjee s vision of rewarding the brightest and the best, we follow a rigorous selection process
A good GRE/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS score is extremely important for those applying overseas; if you have received a low GRE score, it may be advisable to improve upon it, to increase your chances of receiving the loan scholarship
After the initial screening of applications, candidates who are found suitable will have to undergo an online test which will be based on the Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA), on Sunday, 15th April 2018
Candidates should note that to be shortlisted for an interview is no guarantee of receiving the loan scholarship.
The interview carries a significant weightage in the selection process and is conducted at Mumbai or through Skype by a Technical Committee from April 2018 onwards.
All the Awards will be announced together by the first week of July 2018 by mail
