About the SDEF Scholarship 2023
Swami Dayanand Charitable Educational Foundation announces its ninth Merit-cum-Means Scholarship 2023-24, which is open to students enrolled in any undergraduate program at public and private universities in India. The goal of SDEF is to assist extraordinarily gifted but financially struggling students who are unable to complete their college studies owing to their financial barriers.
We started Indian Scholarships in 2015 by contacting IITs to offer scholarships to their students. Henceforth, we expanded our reach by including all NITs. Each scholarship is Rs. 20,000 per year (at par with the national scholarship). We expanded our reach to include medical colleges. In 2017, we opened it to all students pursuing a professional course. From 2018 onwards, we have also included the top 100 private colleges on our list to award scholarships. We have now opened our scholarship to all undergraduate disciplines- B.A, B.Com, B.Sc, BE, B.Tech, B.Arch, MBBS, B.Pharma, and any other (up to 4 years) undergraduate course.
There are many students who are not able to pursue higher studies due to financial constraints despite of having the ability and talent. Our aim is to inspire and transform the lives of brilliant and economically backward students. Educating youth has an impact not only on the individual but the family, the community, and the country as a whole.
The scholarship is available for all professionals – engineering, medicine, architecture, etc., and other undergraduate courses.
75% or above Marks in 12th / CGPA of at least 7.5.
Annual Family Income of less than 6 LPA
