Scholarship Scheme is up to one lakh per student per year, depending on the study Programme. This initiative of the University is to benefit the talented students to let them continue higher education of their choice. The last date to avail relevant scholarship is July 31, 2012. This scheme towards Scholarship is based on the percentage of marks in Eligibility Qualification (70% aggregate marks or above) or the relevant entrance national level test like AIEEE, CAT, MAT, XAT etc or State level . But in case of the Post-Graduation program scholarship has been also provided on the basis of the class 12th marks on the demand by the students that it is very difficult to score high in Graduation.
