There are lots of scholarship schemes to study in India. But here, (in central province) it’s all for the children of plantation workers and to the children of the parents who earn below a particular rate of income. My parents are government workers and get a good income. Is there any scholarship schemes that is given on the basis of qualification of the student? Especially in Tamil Nadu state colleges? (I can go there on my own, but my parents won’t try to it, until a chance comes itself.)
