Scholarship for Deserving Students in IITM


About this cause

Studying in IIT Madras is a dream for many students. The only criteria to achieve the goal has been and should be merit but nothing else. Among the meritorious students, a few need financial support to pursue their education at IIT Madras.

Till 2015, the Tuition fee for a student was Rs.90,000/- per annum, the Merit-Cum Scholarship fully supported the total cost of the tuition fees. Since 2016, the tuition fee has been revised to Rs.2 lakhs per annum. The Govt. Merit-Cum Scholarship has been revised to 2/3rd of Rs.2 lakhs (i.e. 1.33 Lakhs). This leaves a sum of Rs. 66,667/- to be borne by the student. This is particularly applicable to those students whose parental income is less than 5 lakhs peryear. From last year (2021-22) we are extending support towards tuition fees i.e Rs. 2 lakhs for the students with parental income Rs. 5Lakhs - Rs. 8Lakhs.

Our alumni have been generously contributing to this cause. Around 750+ students benefitted in the last 5 years.

With a new academic year approaching, there are students who look forward to your help. We request our alumni to support the deserving students with the required financial assistance and let them focus on their education.
