Planning for MBBS Abroad? Texila American University Announces Scholarship worth Rs 20 lakh for NEET qualified students

New Delhi- As NEET results are declared, many students who qualified the exams will be worried with the limited amount of opportunities available for them to pursue MBBS in India. Each year, many meritorious students miss out on getting admission in an Indian medical education institute even after qualifying NEET due to the limited amount of seats in government colleges, high cut off rate and increased fees in private medical colleges.

Students are currently facing the heat of excessive competition as out of the 63,000 available medical seats, 50% are allotted to private colleges. This year, around 15 lakh students applied for the exam and currently as many as 22 medical aspirants are competing for a single seat.

Acknowledging the condition of the medical education in India, Texila American University (TAU) announced a scholarship of Rs. 20 lakh to help many NEET qualified students to fulfil their dream of becoming a doctor. TAU has declared the scholarship for every meritorious student and is giving them an opportunity to pursue their medical aspirations abroad.

Established in the year 2010, Texila American University has been developing great minds in the field of medicine. Represented by a tradition of innovation and research, TAU is breaking new grounds, pushing forward the boundaries of knowledge and making an impact. TAU has been a destination for medical education for students from India especially from states like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Punjab, Delhi, Gujarat, West Bengal and North-eastern states. The institute has students from almost 40 countries and admits admissions twice a year, i.e., March and September as the academic results of most of the students are declared in June.

TAU offers students options to either study in the normal track where they can return to India with inbuilt training to clear Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE) or the US track with which they can continue their clinical rotations in the US. This is also the first step for them to explore opportunities about post-graduate residency training in the United States. In addition to this, they will also be trained in the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

“Owing to the natural calamities like cyclone Fani in Odisha and train delay in Karnataka, we believe that the results of many students in these states may have been affected. Hence our university decided to double the amount of scholarship this year from Rs. 10 lakhs to Rs. 20 lakhs. With a limited number of medical seats being available in the country, many such students who may have qualified NEET this year may be feeling low and would be thinking of burying their dreams of becoming a doctor. We wish to help such aspiring students in the best possible way and through our scholarship, we are offering them an opportunity to pursue their medical aspirations,” said Mr S.P. Saju Bhaskar, President, Texila American University.
