Limited Funds

GIKI Alumni Association’s Scholarship Program is aimed at assisting the genuinely needy students who are unable to meet their educational expenditure. It should be realized that a limited amount is available for providing scholarships to the students. Therefore serious effort should be made to raise funds (loans, scholarships etc.) from all other sources available before applying to the Alumni Association for scholarship[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”18px”]

Program highlights
  1. Scholarships are only offered for a given year without any commitment for continued assistance for remainder of student’s academic program.
  2. Students will have to submit a new application every year and their application will be processed and evaluated with rest of the applications.
  3. Each applicant will have to establish their financial need and academic standing by submitting a completed application form with supplemental documents.
  4. Applicants will be asked to appear for an evaluation interview in front of a panel.
  5. A calendar with key milestone dates will be posted highlighting deadlines for application submission, interview dates and announcement of results.
  6. Funding is limited; therefore, after establishing the financial needs of a student, the selection process puts special emphasis on academic performance of the applicants.
