Student Scholarship

Partial and full student scholarship support and merit awards are provided to students who are not eligible for government scholarships. Scholarships are mainly provided to UG students as the PG programmes are fully covered by the government. Around 10% of the UG students are also covered under the social welfare programs of the government.

Impact

The student scholarships at IIT Kanpur are aimed at enabling needy and meritorious students to excel in their academic endeavors and turn their aspirations into a reality. The awards recognize merit and provide better opportunities to students both in terms of higher education and career opportunities.

Criticality

The current fund position allows us to support only 10 to 25% of the total expenditure of the student for a year including tuition fees, living costs and other miscellaneous expenditure given the increase in tuition fees (even though it is still highly subsidized). The number of scholarships available provides benefits to not more than 15% of the yearly applicants.
