<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Science is embedded in Indian society, and since ancient times, India has led the world in Mathematics and Science. Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE) was the brainchild of our former President, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the missile man of India. India has had this challenge of revamping its scientific base after centuries of colonial rule, and this was the step in the direction to make a concerted effort. INSPIRE Scholarship is a holistic approach that takes into account the necessity of imparting a scientific impetus right from the nascent stages. This has helped millions of students so far to realize their dreams of pursuing science and related studies without taking a toll on their finances.&nbsp; &nbsp; The financial assistance through the INSPIRE Scholarship is a well-structured approach that has different scholarship schemes for students from different age brackets and levels of education. There was a need to bring forth a scheme that takes a democratic approach and encompasses a significant section of a student by curating different schemes for students from all levels of education from 6th standard to Ph.D. &nbsp;</p> <hr> <small>This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at <a href="https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/inspire-scholarship">https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/inspire-scholarship</a></small> ...

<p>Several organizations and governments across the world run several programs to help underprivileged and meritorious students further their education. These programs are based on particular criteria that must be met by the student to be eligible. <a href="https://www.gyandhan.com/scholarships">Scholarships</a> and fellowships are two examples of schemes that are frequently misunderstood in this regard. The majority of students are unsure about the distinction between a scholarship and a fellowship. These two expressions are sometimes misconstrued since they both imply “financial assistance” for students and researchers, or anyone with a desire to learn, discover, and investigate something new. A University, a Research Centre, an academic institution, a laboratory, the government, or a foundation establishes “scholarships” and “fellowships”.&nbsp;</p> <hr> <small>This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at <a href="https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/fellowship-vs-scholarship">https://www.gyandhan.com/blogs/fellowship-vs-scholarship</a></small> ...
