Note:


You will need to contact professors of HEI listed universities. Professor will have to agree on a proposal and you will need to submit an application online with the professor’s consent. Sometimes the professor helps you in preparing proposals and application and sometimes you will have to do it all by yourself.

The scholarship is not in the hands of professors/advisors. IRC will grant scholarships but applications are to be sent with the collaboration of adviser. So start looking for HEI universities and shortlist professors with the same interests. Almost every field is available.
