Financial Assistance: 2018-21
This is subject to revision on annual basis.
The University has an explicit commitment to build an inclusive and diverse student body. We offer extensive need-based scholarships (full and partial) to cover the Tuition Fee, Accommodation and Food charges.
Family income bands of up to 12 lakhs per annum will be considered for various categories of scholarship. While family income is an important criterion in deciding the quantum of scholarship, other socio-economic factors and circumstances will also be considered in scholarship decisions. Students requesting financial assistance should provide all the information requested in the Financial Assistance form.
The University reserves the right to award or reject financial assistance and its decision will be final and binding.
The financial assistance provided is in the following categories:
Types of Scholarship
- Full waiver of Tuition fee, Accommodation and Food charges in exceptional circumstances
- Full or Partial waiver of Tuition fee and Accommodation charge
- Partial waiver of Tuition fee
- The University will facilitate Education loans, through tie ups with banks. Students getting scholarship have the option of availing loans for the balance amount not covered by scholarships.
- Non-scholarship students also can avail bank loans. These are open to all family income bands.
- Students can apply for loan to cover tuition, accommodation and food charges. The actual loan amount to avail can be decided by students, parents / guardians.
- In the case of students availing education loans, all documentation required by the bank should be provided by the students / parents / guardians. While University will assist the student in the loan process, University does not take responsibility for the sanction / disbursement of the loan. The final decision on the loan rests with the bank.
- However, students are responsible to pay the tuition fees, student accommodation or any other amounts to the University on such due dates as communicated by the University.
