Partial and full student scholarship support and merit awards are provided to students who are not eligible for government scholarships. Scholarships are mainly provided to UG students as the PG programmes are fully covered by the government. Around 10% of the UG students are also covered under the social welfare programs of the government.


The student scholarships at IIT Kanpur are aimed at enabling needy and meritorious students to excel in their academic endeavors and turn their aspirations into a reality. The awards recognize merit and provide better opportunities to students both in terms of higher education and career opportunities.
