The two new scholarships introduced this year are:

Gifted Student Scholarship: This is a merit based admissions process under which the university considers students with certificates from pre- identified exams. Eligible students are directly invited for an in-person interview at the University. Once they are selected they are entitled to a 100 per cent tuition waiver. The exams considered for this scholarship will include:

  • National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) toppers holding ranks up to 1,000

Rural Student Scholarship: This scholarship will support students of exceptional caliber from a rural and underprivileged background. Up to 20 students are entitled to this at the under- graduate level (basis the University’s selection process). The scheme offers a full tuition waiver along with hostel and living expenses extended as a loan to be repaid by students after they graduate.

Undergraduate programs include the following courses: Bachelor of Arts (Research), Bachelor of Science (Research), Bachelor of Management Studies and Bachelor of Technology. Details of admission to all programs for the Academic Year 2017-18, including new programs are available on the University website.
