FEE CONCESSIONS, SCHOLARSHIPS AND OTHER EDUCATIONAL AIDS
The college has subsidized its tuition fees for the benefit of all the students, keeping in mind their economic status, even though the institution does not get any financial assistance from the state govt. or UGC. Students from poor backgrounds are assisted financially after meeting the parent and village authorities and along with them, the college takes collaborative responsibility in helping in the student’s education. Besides, 95% of the students belong to the SC/ST category and get Post-Matric scholarship, making fee concession almost not required.
However, the college offers certain scholarships and other educational aids to help gifted and economically disadvantaged.
1.1 Don Bosco Provincial Scholarships for 4 selected catholic students from Maram Khullen Circle selected by the Principal.
1.2 Scholarship of Rs. 1000 each for Eight Toppers in Degree first year Examinations.
1.3 Scholarship of Rs. 2000 each for Eight Toppers in Degree second year Examinations.
The first two scholarships are for gifted students to qualify themselves with value added courses under BIIT or under IGNOU, residential programmes, educational tours and payment of tuition fees.
The College with the help of some well wishers of the college has established a few awards to students who are excelling in their University and College Exams. These awards are given out during an official function organised in the college.
If anyone would like to give awards to students for various scholastic and co-scholastic programmes organised in the college, kindly approach the Principal with the proposal. The awards are accepted in the beginning of the academic session. The cash award will be deposited in the college account at the beginning of the academic year. Scholarship funds are welcome from interested alumni, well-wishers, parents of students and alumni. The fund thus generated will meet the cost of education of one or two students for their education in the college in the case of scholarships. In case of endowments the sum will be utilized for the purpose of organizing a guest lecture by a prominent person from any part of the country on any one of the themes chosen by the college council, consisting of the department heads and management. The choice of theme shall be in rotation as to give acknowledgement to developments in each of the subjects taught in the college. The endowment grant should cover the cost of the travel expenses of the invited speaker, his/her honorarium and the expenses for the hosting of the event at the college (invitations, food for invitees, and publicity). A sum of 40000/- should cover the above costs.
