The Study India Programme initiated by the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs is envisaged as a means of enhancing engagement with the Diaspora youth. The objective of the Scheme is to enable overseas Indian youth i.e. foreign citizens of Indian origin in the age group of 18-26 years to undergo short term courses in the nature of summer schools to familiarize them with the art & culture, heritage, history, economy and development of India. Such short term courses shall aim at providing an opportunity to the overseas Indian youth to better understand and appreciate contemporary India, foster closer ties with the land of their ancestors and enhance their engagement with India.
Details of the Programme will be available from the Ministry’s website. http://www.moia.gov.in
