About The Scholarship

NDTV has been a pioneer in the Indian TV journalism space and has often leveraged the power of its reach to bring about positive changes in society and to solve real world problems through dedicated and innovative programing.

Deakin, one of Australia’s most progressive University, has initiated a campaign called “Changing 100 Lives” which aims to enable students to access, participate and achieve a higher education regardless of their location, socio-economic status or family situation.

As natural partners towards a common cause, of "Changing Lives", the NDTV Deakin Scholarship Program was launched in April 2015 to offer one 100% tuition fee scholarship to a deserving candidate for enrolment for onshore studies at Deakin University in Australia. 2016 promised to be bigger and better and saw four meritorious students win 100% tuition fee scholarships. In its 3rd year now, we are offering two scholarships each for under graduate or postgraduate level studies.

The objective of the NDTV Deakin Scholarship is to identify deserving students with meritorious academic history and holistic achievements and to offer them a chance to enroll for on-shore graduate or post graduate programs at Deakin University, Australia, with the view of giving back to India the skills and experience it needs in various areas.
