How did i-Scholar initiative contribute to your journey?
Winning the ISI Scholarship provided me with a positive atmosphere that made my scholarship hunt easier. Apart from the generous funding provided for my GRE and TOEFL exams, the constant exposure to insightful webinars coupled with mentorship from senior scholars and professionals made a whole lot of difference. Also, the exclusive scholars’ community made it easy for me to bounce my ideas off my fellow scholars and get useful advice. I am forever grateful to the iSI for providing me with such an opportunity.
