Fees & financial aid

We believe that nobody should be denied admissions because of financial constraints. We offer extensive scholarships covering tuition fees and accommodation.

Scholarships

Our scholarships are based on family income

  • Students with an annual family income of less than 15 lakhs are eligible for different levels of scholarships.
  • Scholarships are for tuition and accommodation.
