The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) plans to institute scholarships in collaboration with the University of Cambridge (UK) for needy and meritorious Sikh students for research studies leading to MPhil and PhD degrees.

SGPC president Jathedar Avtar Singh said the SGPC had received a proposal from the Department of Human Resources, University of Cambridge (UK), in February this year regarding providing opportunities to Indian students from the Sikh community.

Michael O’ Sullivan Joseph, Director, Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, arrived in India a few days back to discuss the modalities for the creation of scholarships.


The Trust grants about 860 scholarships to Commonwealth students who are meritorious and fulfill the eligibility for admission to Cambridge varsity.
