Indian Oil launches sports scholarship for school students

The scholarships will range from Rs. 9000 to Rs. 14000 per month for a 3 year period. The deadline for applications is 15th June 2015.

Indian Oil Corporation has come out with a wonderful opportunity for upcoming players in India. The country has a huge number of players in different games but due to lack of proper guidance and financial support players are not able to groom up their talent, and hence they are not able to achieve adequate success. Many students have benefited from this scholarship in previous years.

This year too Indian Oil has launched the Indian Oil Sport Scholarship 2015 for school students, targeted at the upcoming players in the country. Students aged between 14 and 19 years who represented state or country, with national ranking between 1 to 15 in junior or sub-junior category or semi-finalist / finalists of national championships can apply for this scholarship.

The Games for which this scholarship will be disseminated are cricket, hockey, basketball, volleyball, football, kabaddi, tennis, billiards and snooker, golf, carom, badminton, chess, archery, boxing, gymnastics, shooting, swimming, wrestling, table tennis and athletics. This year there are 140 scholarships up for grabs, compared to 70 last year.
