Selection for the Awards
Please read carefully because the JN Tata Loan scholarship is highly competitive. 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. Candidates may note the following points:
Apart from consistent academic performance, we give importance to participation in both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
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.
The statement of purpose carries considerable weight in the selection process. We have provided some guidance on our website on how you can construct a good statement of purpose. Please ensure that your statement of purpose is written by you and free from plagiarism. Many students fill the SoP with too many biographical details which is not required.
