IIT-BHU Varanasi Scholarships Guidelines

  1. In general, scholarships should be given to students from low-income families who have a high CPI (for example, students whose families make up to Rs. 5 Lakh per year).
  2. There are two ways to start a scholarship: by creating an endowment or by paying the student directly. Something other than a person, like a trust, a group, an agency, etc. Here are the terms and conditions for both: a) Recurring Scholarships: At least Rs. 3,000 per month for at least 10 months in an Academic Year. If the number of awards or the amount of awards goes up, so will the amount of the fund. The minimum endowment amount for a single giver will be Rs. 30,000 Lakh, while it will be Rs. 50,000 Lakh for everyone else. b) One-time award scholarship: It will pay back half or all of the student's tuition fee after he or she has successfully registered for each term. For this reason, the Senate Scholarship Committee of the Institute will decide on the amount of the gift.
  3. There will be two ways for scholarships to be paid: a) Payment by the Institute: The donor will give the endowment money to the Institute, which will then spend it wisely. Institute will make the bill and pay the grant at the end of each semester with interest from endowment funds. b) Payment by the Donor: An endowment fund doesn't have to be set up by the giver. The scholarship amount will be paid straight to the student's account by the donor, who will let the Institute know.
  4. The amount of the fund will be good for five years from the date it was set up. After that, it will be looked at again to see if it needs to be increased since interest rates are always going down.
