Ten young go-getters from across the country received their TOEFL scholarships on Wednesday. Valued at approximately US$70,000 the scholarships recognise the academic excellence of TOEFL test takers throughout India, reports Time of India.

The scholarships, funding for which was increased by US$10,000 since 2011, are awarded to help students continue their education at the undergraduate and graduate school levels. While four students were awarded a US$10,000 scholarship to study in universities or colleges in the UK, US, Australia and Canada; six other students received a US$5,000 scholarship to pursue graduate programs elsewhere in the world.

The TOEFL Scholarship was introduced in the 2010-11 academic year in India, and has since covered other Asian countries including Korea, Japan and Taiwan. The funding for the program has increased from US$50,000 to US$70,000 in two years.

The response has been good with the number of applications increasing by 30% this year when compared to 2011. ETS received 960 applications for the TOEFL scholarships this year, says an official communication.
