Scholarship named after SRK makes a comeback at La Trobe University

A scholarship named after Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan at the La Trobe University has made a comeback.

The Shah Rukh Khan La Trobe University PhD Scholarship was named after superstar SRK in 2019.

The registration for the scholarship started recently on August 18 and will go all the way till September 23. In partnership with the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne and La Trobe University, the scholarship aims to provide a life-changing opportunity for an aspiring female researcher from India to make a meaningful impact in the world.

The first ever scholarship was announced at the 2019 festival where SRK was the chief guest and visited the university to launch this program.

Soon after, India’s Gopika Kottantharayil Bhasi from Thrissur in Kerala was awarded the maiden scholarship. La Trobe University expressed that this was their most applied for scholarship with over 800 applicants and hence the scholarship has been introduced back courtesy of the festival that facilitated this.

The top criteria for the selection is that the candidate has to be a female Indian national who should be residing in India and have completed a Masters of Research degree within the past 10 years. The selected student will be receiving a four-year La Trobe University Full-Fee Research Scholarship.
