      However, national overseas scholarships for SC and ST applicants are solely available to Indian citizens and are intended particularly for students in the SC and ST categories. In addition, I encourage you to apply for the other scholarship opportunities; make a short list of them by including preferences that fit the objectives and circumstances, and then carefully review the conditions before applying.

      Hello Muthu Selvan,

      It is advisable to consider applying for this specific scholarship after completing your graduation. Depending solely on scholarships may not be the optimal approach unless you have an accompanying education loan facilitating your educational funding.
