Scholarships of the value equal to tuition fee for the duration of the program (eight semesters only) are awarded for each category. From the year 2016-17, the scholarship scheme would be as under.
Selection of Scholarship Winners: Selection of scholarship awardees will be based on the performance in the admission test, viz. JEE Mains Exam (Joint Engineering Entrance Mains Examination) conducted by CBSE. Selection criteria would be as follows:
- Merit Scholarship:Scholarships would be awarded to the top five students, who take admission in the program, with an All India Rank in JEE Main (conducted by CBSE) better than 5000 (n.b. smaller numerical value indicates higher rank: student with rank 01 is the best performer nationally). In case such candidates are less than five, the remaining scholarships (five minus the awarded) may be transferred to Merit-cum-Means category.
- Merit-cum-Means Scholarship: Scholarships would be offered to the five students with the highest All India Rank in JEE Main (conducted by CBSE) who take admission in the program, subject to a means test. In order to be eligible for this category of scholarship, the annual family income of the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) should not exceed Rs. 3,00,000/- per annum. Awardees would be required to submit suitable documents in proof of the above every year.
Rules for Merit Scholarship The scholarship would be continued on a semester-wise basis for a maximum of eight semesters (normal duration of the program) provided that the student satisfies the conditions given below. The Summer Semester is not covered in the scheme; hence a student who does not satisfy a particular condition in the Winter Semester of a particular academic year would not be eligible for the scholarship in the Autumn Semester of the succeeding academic year.
- Minimum SPI: The SPI (Semester Performance Index) obtained by the student should be 8.00/10.00 or above in every semester. If the SPI falls below 8.00/10.00 in a particular semester, the scholarship would not be offered in the succeeding semester. However, if the SPI in a semester again is 8.00/10.00 or above, then the scholarship would be restored from the succeedingsemester.
- Pass in all Courses:The student should not obtain a grade other than a passing grade in all the courses taken in a semester, i.e. the student should have obtained grade of DE or above for courses with letter grades, and a grade of P for all courses with P/F grades. If the student gets a non-passing grade (ie F/NP/X) in any course of a semester, then he will not be eligible for the scholarship for one succeeding semester.
A student who undertakes some courses of a semester at some other institution under the transfer of credits provision will not be eligible for the scholarship for the succeeding semester.
