Inspire has upgraded its system and will now allow students to upload details of their academic documents online for renewal of the scholarship/fellowship with effect from
January 1, 2015. Candidates can apply for scholarships, fellowships and faculty awards online beginning next year. This will allow the students to easily renew their scholarships, fellowships and faculty awards.
Students will no longer need to send their documents via post. This will minimize a lot of hassles like loss of documents, late delivery, etc. However, this process will become active from January 1, 2015 from 10 AM onwards.
What is this new rule?
According to the new rule, candidates submitting their documents prior to January 1, 2015 will need to send the same by post. Inspire will stop accepting documents by post after December 31, 2014. To use this facility the students have to first register themselves online by providing the necessary details. The students should keep their user id and password safely for future use.
