(July 7, 2011)- 2011 TOEFL® Scholarship Program Awards US$60,000 to Students in India

Mumbai, India  (July 7, 2011) —

At an award ceremony and press conference today, Educational Testing Service (ETS) Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Dr. Walt MacDonald announced the winners of the 2011 TOEFL® Scholarship Program. For the second consecutive year, the scholarship program recognizes academic excellence by TOEFL test takers in India.

ETS honored nine high-performing students from India, awarding US$60,000 in scholarship funding for undergraduate or graduate study in 2011. Three US$10,000 scholarships were presented: one scholarship each for study in the U.K., U.S. and Canada. Six US$5,000 scholarships were also presented: one scholarship each for study in the U.K., U.S., and Canada, and three scholarships for any other location. Funding for the 2011 TOEFL Scholarship Program represents an increase of US$10,000 from last year's program.

"It is a privilege to be in Mumbai today to celebrate the significant accomplishments of the 2011 TOEFL Scholarship Winners," commented MacDonald. "Having the opportunity again this year to recognize outstanding Indian students who have demonstrated academic success in the classroom and made notable contributions to their communities is a great honor. We wish the TOEFL Scholarship Winners all the best as they take the next step in pursuing their educational goals."

The 2011 TOEFL Scholarship Program was extremely competitive. More than 650 applications were received for consideration this year, doubling the number of applications received for last year's program. Scholarship winners represented various regions of India including Chennai (2), Mumbai (2), New Delhi (2), Kolkata, Hyderabad and Coimbatore. Each winner demonstrated an outstanding ability to communicate in English, strong academics and extra-curricular activities, such as community service, and effective leadership skills.

The ETS Scholarship and Recognition Programs (SRP) group, which annually administers millions of dollars in new and renewable awards in the United States and abroad, was involved in the coordination of the TOEFL Scholarship Program in India.
