Indian Council For Cultural Relations (ICCR) Scholarship Scheme

The medical insurance coverage can be done either by themselves before travel or immediately after reaching India. Students can purchase medical insurance from any of the insurance companies of their choice. However, to facilitate students, A2A Portal has two insurance companies for referral purposes. The revised forms are uploaded on the A2A Portal.


Applicants have the option to apply to 5 universities/institutes in the order of their preference of study. The admission, as far as possible, shall be given as per the applicant’s preference. However, there may be a scenario when students do not get admission to their preferred universities/institutes due to the limited number of seats on offer. Students should therefore be prepared to receive admission from any of their five preferences.
