Gill Caldicott, Acting Country Director, British Council India said, “Goa Education Trust scholarship is an initiative through which we support the Indian students to enhance their skills by studying in the best UK universities. The scholarship has already benefitted a lot of students and we are positive towards receiving a higher number of applicants this year as well.”

Notes to the Editor:
- Goa Education Trust Scholarship (GET) has been conceptualized by the industrious Dempo and Fomento groups from Goa. GET is aimed to provide Goans an efficient medium to pursue the best available opportunities in education, in whichever academic fields they desire. It will provide scholarships to eligible students for their post graduate studies in the United Kingdom in all spheres, fields and departments. Both the groups are well known in Goa as also in other parts of India for their contribution towards social causes ranging from education, medical care and child and women development. Both the groups have long felt the need to provide Goans an efficient medium to pursue the best available opportunities in education, in whatever areas they desire. It is with this intention that the seed of forming a channel for higher education was germinated and it is today that the seed is seeing full bloom with the launch of the Goa Education Trust.
