Introduction: The Institute awards scholarships to deserving students of the B Tech programs. There are two categories of scholarships:

    • Merit Scholarship
    • Merit-cum-Means Scholarship

Scholarships of the value equal to tuition fee for the duration of the program (eight semesters only) are awarded for each category. From the year 2016-17, the scholarship scheme would be as under.

Selection of Scholarship Winners: Selection of scholarship awardees will be based on the performance in the admission test, viz. JEE Mains Exam (Joint Engineering Entrance Mains Examination) conducted by CBSE. Selection criteria would be as follows:

  • Merit Scholarship:Scholarships would be awarded to the top five students, who take admission in the program, with an All India Rank in JEE Main (conducted by CBSE) better than 5000 (n.b. smaller numerical value indicates higher rank: student with rank 01 is the best performer nationally). In case such candidates are less than five, the remaining scholarships (five minus the awarded) may be transferred to Merit-cum-Means category.
  • Merit-cum-Means Scholarship: Scholarships would be offered to the five students with the highest All India Rank in JEE Main (conducted by CBSE) who take admission in the program, subject to a means test.
