To help outstanding students overcome financial obstacles in their pursuit of a quality education, IFMR GSB will offer full tuition fee waiver scholarships upto three meritorious students during the admissions process. However, the student will need to pay the caution deposit, living fee and any other expenses incurred during the programme.
No separate application is required. The Scholarship Committee
automatically considers all qualified applicants.
The tuition fee waiver scholarships are awarded based on the overall evaluation of candidates. Evaluation criteria include academic record, scores on competitive exams, extra-curricular achievements and performance in written test and interview.
Candidates selected for such scholarships receive the scholarship offer letter before the last date for paying the first instalment fee. The candidate will be required to pay the first instalment of the tuition fee by the deadline. Once the student enrolls in the programme and classes begin, the entire amount paid by the student towards the first instalment fee will be refunded by the middle of Term – 1. The student will not be required to pay subsequent instalments of the tuition fee.
