Today I have an important announcement. I’ve just received an email from British Council India and it had some very good news for the students planning to study at universities overseas. I am going to share this email with you in a second:
We enjoy reading your blog and find the information highly educational and inspiring.
I wanted to inform you about the newly launched scholarship from the British Council – The British Council IELTS Scholarship. The British Council is delighted to announce the 2010 launch of the British Council IELTS Scholarship for Indian students planning to study at universities overseas.
In line with its mission to promote the global sharing of knowledge and ideas, the British Council will select eight students from India, each of whom will receive an award of Rs.3,00,000 ( over £4000 , $ 6500) towards the cost of tuition fees.
In 2010, the British Council is also launching the award in three other countries with a total investment of around £60,000 (approximately $90,000).
Award winners will begin a full time post graduate programme at any overseas university which uses IELTS as a part of its admission requirements and as a reliable measure of English language proficiency. Because IELTS is accepted by over 6,000 institutions in 125 countries worldwide, university choice is wide.

How about that, I think this initiative of British Council is a great chance for people to live their dreams. Good luck to everyone who’s applying!
