This is a great gesture from the country's flagship company, ONGC, to provide financial assistance to the eligible reserved category candidates studying in various disciplines. There are many organisations that declare scholarships for engineering and medical students but there are few organisations giving scholarships to the students doing their Geophysics/ Geology degrees from the corresponding institutes. So, the students who are studying in the Geophysics or Geology stream should take note of this great opportunity and should definitely apply for it.
