Indian Council For Cultural Relations ICCR Scholarships 2016-2017, Eligibility Criteria, Application Procedure
India is a land rich in myths. India’s fine arts, its literature and architecture, whether tribal, folk or classical, evolved either as delicate representations of a greater pursuit, through a great desire to absorb and integrate talents and expressions outside its own monarchy, or as popular forms of amusement. One of the major and huge activities under Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) is the scholarship programme. The ICCR offers 2325 scholarships under 21 scholarship schemes every year.
