There is no dearth of talent in our country, but many students are unable to make their educational dreams come true due to their financial conditions. To overcome this, the state and central government and many organisations offer scholarships to meritorious and needy students. There are mainly two types of scholarships. One is merit based and the other is exam-based. You can find a list of such scholarships below. There are two ways to get a scholarship. The first one is through a program-specific entrance exam, and the second is based on grades earned in the final examination of the preceding class. Let's now look at entrance exam-based scholarships..
