  14. I am planning for Spring 2021. I heard the registrations will soon be open from january 16th but my university will start functioning from january 9th only. Can I apply for this scholarship after joining my university and can i apply for it from the United States? Or should I apply for it from India only?

    And sir can I also know what Tax assessment is? And how can one get it? I don’t have one right now.

    Also, how much do they take to sanction the scholarship amount after the registrations are closed? Because by then I will have completed one semester of mine.

    Please do reply sir, looking forward to it.
