Kolkata: Unlike most other premier institutes, the new mantra at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT-KGP) seems to be; "The scholarship chooses you, or you choose a scholarship-it works both ways!'

"At IIT Kharagpur, you can self-elect yourself to a scholarship. For instance, if you are a top JEE Advanced scorer, at the end of the 1st semester, you will be eligible to apply for the 'Learn-Earn-Return' scholarship that gives the recipient Rs 10,000 per month for four years, provided, of course, a CGPA of 9 is maintained. In return, the student has to take a pledge to give back to the Institute once they are capable to do so," a spokesperson of IIT KGP said.
