scholarships for Cambridge students

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday launched the “Dr Manmohan Singh Scholarships” for doctoral studies to be undertaken at St John’s College in University of Cambridge.

This scholarship, which is sponsored by Rolls Royce, Tatas and the BP Foundation, would fund four students annually and each student would get £35,000 annually for meeting various expenses.

Launching the scholarship, the Prime Minister, who studied in Cambridge, recounted his own experience and said “my life is a living example of what scholarships can do for those who come from less-privileged sections of society”.

He also said given his “modest background”, the fact that he was able to “study at all, not to mention at Cambridge” was a “testimony to the role of scholarships”.
