In exceptional cases, we also provide financial assistance towards food expenses.

We do not consider delayed submissions, so please be ready with the required documentation on time.

The University will conduct its own verification process through a third-party agency, to validate all the financial information including income details and supporting documents provided by you. If the verification does not conform to the details provided by you, the University will withdraw scholarship. The decision of the University in all such cases will be final and binding.
