Scholarships for meritorious students at IITD not only provide academic encouragement to such students but are also important for the financial support they provide. Donor endowed scholarships can augment the scholarships provided by IIT Delhi and support a larger number of students in their pursuit of excellence.
BTech and MSc students who have a CGPA of 6 and a family income of at most Rs 450,000 per annum are eligible for Merit-cum-means scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to at most 25% of the students and provide a tuition waiver and Rs 1000 per month. An additional 10% of students meeting the income criterion are provided a tuition waiver. The tuition fee is exempted to all the students of the SC/ ST/ PwD category.
MDes, MTech and MS(R) students are provided teaching and research assistantships of Rs 12,400 per month. Dual degree students in the 5th year having a CGPA of 8 or more are also eligible for these assistantships.
All PhD students are eligible for a grant of Rs 150,000 for travel to a conference once during their program. Students demonstrating research excellence are eligible for a second such award.
