- Meet the Global Excellence Scholarship Undergraduate criteria and have a confirmed Global Excellence award from the University of Dundee.
The University of Dundee is proud to announce one new scholarship to be awarded to an Indian domiciled student who wishes to study for an undergraduate degree in any subject starting in 2020. The winner of the studentship will receive an extra £5,000 on top of the standard Global Excellence Scholarship (£5,000) which is awarded to excellent applicants. As a result the student will receive a sum of £10,000.
The scholarship is named to honour one of Dundee's early Indian students who went on to use his education to help transform the lives of ordinary people living in the city of Dundee. Born in northern India (1898) he transferred his medical studies to the Medical School in Dundee and graduated in 1923.
Subsequently, he became a local GP and proceeded to gain diplomas in ophthalmic medicine, public health, and surgery. He served on the Boards of various education and welfare bodies and was elected Town Councillor in 1936. He served the city of Dundee as a Councillor for eighteen years until his death in 1954.
On his death, the Lord Provost of Dundee, William Hughes, said: ‘He was a man of compassion for everyone in need…he came to Dundee from halfway across the world but no son of Dundee had greater love for its people or worked harder in their interest. Dundee is much poorer by his passing’. His contribution to the city was also marked a Dundee street being named in his memory.
