K.C. Mahindra Scholarships for Postgraduate Studies Abroad

Get support on choosing a study

The K.C. Mahindra Education Trust was founded by the late Mr K.C. Mahindra, with an objective of promoting literacy and higher learning in the country. Since 1956, the Trust has granted interest-free loan scholarships to deserving students to pursue post-graduate studies abroad in various fields.

Since its inception, the K.C. Mahindra Education Trust has promoted education mainly by way of scholarships and grants to deserving and needy students. Some of these were instituted way back in the mid 1950s while others were founded more recently, a proof of its continous efforts to bring about social and economic development through a literate, enlightened and empowerd populace. The Trust's Vision is "To transform the lives of people in India through education by providing financial assistance and recognition to them, across all age groups and income strata". With this vision the Trust continues to make a difference in the lives of thousands of disadvantaged students by offering them a variety of scholarships, livelihood training programmes and financial support.
