Texila American University announces scholarship for NEET qualified students
Kolkata, June 27: Texila American University (TAU), an international medical school, has announced it will award scholarships to deserving students who have qualified under the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) and need funding to pursue their educational goals.

TAU announced a scholarship of Rs. 20 lakh to help NEET qualified students fulfill their dream of becoming a doctor, and also has plans to  give them an opportunity to pursue their medical aspirations abroad.


Established in 2010, Texila American University has been a destination for medical education for students from India, especially from states such as Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Punjab, Delhi, Gujarat, West Bengal and North-eastern states, the institute said in a release.


The institute has students from almost 40 countries and holds 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 United States.


In addition to this, they will be trained in 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, said S.P. Saju Bhaskar, President, Texila American University. Hence our university decided to double the amount of scholarship this year from Rs. 10 lakhs to Rs. 20 lakhs."
