Prime Minister’s National ICT Scholarship Program has been a flagship HRD initiative of Ignite (Formerly National ICT R&D Fund). Program’s out-reach to talented students of underserved areas has made it a true success story. This story reached its climax when the talented youth from marginalized areas outshined their urban peers in different areas of academic as well as extracurricular activities. Ignite (Formerly National ICT R&D Fund) is proud of all such heroes who have kept the grace of their respective native towns through their sheer hard work and dedication.

Having run the Program for 8 years and before going any further the need has been felt at the policy level to revamp the Program for its utmost efficacy. It is expected that through the redesign of the program, quality shall be further improved and shall have more value addition for the beneficiaries. It is due to this reason that the scholarships for the year 2015 will not be available under this Program.
