Financial Assistantships and Scholarship Schemes

Hope Foundation and its educational institutions offer several financial  support schemes by way of scholarships, fee waiver and concession schemes, teaching and research assistance, financial assistance for entrepreneurial development etc. to meritorious and deserving students. Nurturing excellence is the underlying philosophy of Hope Foundation. It is our endeavor to ensure that constraints like financial background don’t deny a student his / her right to excel and find his / her place under the sun.

Student Merit Scholarships and Patron Awards also form part of the financial support scheme. It is an endeavor to provide opportunities to students who have the potential to become the innovators and leaders of tomorrow but cannot fulfil their educational ambitions due to financial constraints. Student Merit Scholarships and Patron Awards promise the dream of many students to reality. Excellence in Academics, Innovations, Entrepreneurial Development etc. are also some of the financial support schemes which are created and awarded to the deserving students for every academic year and on the basis of need as well as merit.

In addition to merit scholarships, fee concessions and fee waivers, several other categories of awards are instituted every year comprising of Academic Excellence Awards, Patron Awards, Technical Awards, Cultural Awards, Social Awards, Sports Awards and the like for the benefit of the student community.
