External Scholarships

The University has tried its level best to raise funds to ensure that no deserving candidate is turned away from the programme due to insufficient funds. Since inception, external donors have played an immense role in achieving this milestone.

These scholarships can potentially help students cover the costs of education and related expenses (i.e. books, accommodation and living).
