The scholarships are provided to cover the University fees, both tuition and accommodation fees.
Candidates with annual family income of less than Rs. 5 lakhs / annum are eligible to apply for scholarships of upto 50%. A candidate who is awarded a 50% scholarship has to pay only 50% of the fees.
Candidates eligible for such part-scholarships can choose to pay the balance fees on their own or take an Education loan facilitated by the University.
For example, in case of a:
** 50% scholarship, 50% own funds: Students have to pay 50% of the fee
** 50% scholarship, 50% loan: No fee is payable directly. The education loan covers the balance 50% and will have to be repaid by the student to the Bank
Based on exceptional circumstances, enhanced financial assistance may be considered for candidates with an annual family income below Rs. 2 lakhs. Details of income provided must include income from salary, pension, rent, agriculture, business, investments, commission and any other sources.
Eligibility does not guarantee scholarships. The University reserves the right to award or deny scholarships and the University’s decision on this will be final and non-negotiable. The University will conduct its own verification of documents and due diligence. The final award of scholarships is based on several factors like family income, number of dependents, background verification, appropriate documentation proof, etc.
The University will facilitate Education loans for students through tie ups with banks. All students (with or without scholarships) can apply for Education loans, for tuition and accommodation fees. The Education loan requires a co-applicant, along with the student and the University only acts as a facilitator.
It is the student’s responsibility to make available all required documents to the bank. Loan repayment starts after completion of the programme and the repayment period is upto five years. Candidates, depending on their requirement, can decide the exact amount of loan they need.
