We give everybody a fair chance at an education and offer need-based scholarships and financial support. We also provide support for students who are differently abled or neurodiverse. Wherever you are from, and whatever your background, be sure that we will consider what you need.

We acknowledge that in a country like India, belonging to historically marginalised communities can affect your access to education. Therefore, we take care to understand your socio-economic background and do our best to make sure that it does not hold you back from acquiring an enriching education.
