It is mandatory for the candidates to pay full fee of the first Semester within due date as financial assistance is not provided in the first Semester. Students and their families may experience financial difficulties. Therefore, it is crucial that expenditure over the academic year is planned in advance. It is our endeavour to provide access to the quality education. Hence the Institute has a limited range of bursaries to support those students who come from lower income families. The Institute grants financial assistance on the basis of demonstrated financial need, from 2nd semester onwards to deserving students. There are no academic, athletic or merit-based awards. “Financial Assistance” will be for one semester and this fee waiver/concession is applicable only on the tuition fee. A student will pay all other payments and fines in whole and no exemption will be granted. Financial Assistance Half Tuition Fee is granted on kinship basis to the younger real brother or sister.
Students are required to submit an application when announced. The application form must be properly filled and attached with the required documents such as income, expenditure and tax return etc. The financial assistance forms are available at the Course Coordinator’s Office of each department. Due date for the submission of financial assistance application is notified on notice boards. Late submissions are not entertained.
Financial assistance cases are reviewed by a committee duly constituted. Based upon the information submitted in the application, the committee assesses the “survival need” of the student. Incomplete applications are refused.
There are a number of external sources of funding (grants and loans), which students may access. In such cases, the Institute will assist in any way it can; full information is only available directly from the sources concerned. The student’s eligibility is a matter between the student and the concerned source.
Financial Assistance is automatically adjusted by the PIFD accounts office against tuition fee if the applications is approved. No amount is disbursed directly to the student.
