Total Scholarships up to 2 Cr | Each Scholarship up to 3 Lacs | National Level Scholarship Test
HEST isIndia’s largest Higher Education Scholarship Test where students from top colleges compete to win scholarships to fund their study abroad.
HEST is powered by , an organization funded & supported by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Govt. of India under the ‘Digital India’ campaign.
We are proudly launching HEST 2024, after receiving a tremendous response with over 10,000+ applicants for the HEST 2023, conducted last year. The total scholarship fund allocated for this HEST season is 2 Crore, with each scholarship of upto 3 lacs. The exact value of each scholarship depends on the quality and quantity of scholarship applications received in that particular season.
NOTE: During our last season of HEST 2023, we found that many students submitted fake loan sanction letters, which were either taken just for the visa purpose or to process their HEST scholarship application ahead. Hence, this year (HEST 2024), we have made this condition mandatory that ONLY students processing their education loan via WeMakeScholars are eligible for this scholarship. Also, since only about 2-5% students get good scholarships, it’s important to have a strong backup funding source as well to make your study abroad dream come true.
WeMakeScholars WILL NOT be charging any service fee for all the HEST applicants.
HEST 2024 registrations are now closed. We will notify you about the upcoming season on HEST, soon.
Stay tuned until then!

NOTE: HEST is only for Indian students planning to study abroad. If you are an Indian national with a foreign contact number, please register with any Indian number to get the OTP.

Siddharth Juyal here from Delhi. I'm currently pursuing my undergraduate in CSE in Patiala. I'm very passionate about Machine Learning & planning to pursue a Masters in Computer Science in the US, which is why I applied to HEST 2023. It felt great when I got to know that I had won the HEST 2023 scholarship. I strongly recommend WeMakeScholars & HEST to all the students who are planning to study abroad, especially as all their services are totally free of cost!

Every year WeMakeScholars conducts the Campus Delegate Internship Program to better organize HEST and spread study abroad funding awareness across various colleges in India.
Students who are still pursuing their studies (in India) can promote HEST 2024 at their respective college campus. This is a 6 week Internship with approximately 1 - 2 hours of work each week. Upon successful completion of this Internship, you will be awarded a certificate of completion with a mention of the ‘Digital India Campaign’ by the IT Ministry, which would be quite valuable on your CV. And top achievers in the internship can get cash awards too.
If you are interested in the Internship or want to refer someone for the Internship, please fill the internship application form here
