IIT Varanasi Scholarships
To provide financial assistance to those students who are unable to afford their tuition fees, the IIT Varanasi institute provides scholarships to those deserving students. The institution believes in education for everybody hence many scholarship opportunities are available for students.
The institute itself offers Mean Cum Merit Scholarships for students who have good merit but are financially backward. This scholarship is reserved for 25% of the candidates in undergraduate courses. The minority groups like the SC and ST can avail other facilities like discounts in mess charges and getting pocket allowances.
IIT Varanasi approves of international scholarships provided by international universities and organisations. If the student is eligible for the scholarship, the institute discounts its fees. Scholarship schemes provided by the government like the Top Class Education Scheme for SC students and National Fellowship and Scholarship for Higher Education of ST Students are also taken into consideration.
Financial assistance in the form of a monthly stipend for PhD students is also provided for their service of research to the institution. Students who cannot avail scholarships can also take the help of education loans to study. Some specific banks provide educational loan at low interests for the institution.
