Renewal of Scholarship

The scholarships are renewable on a year-on-year basis, for a maximum period of 3- years only or until the completion of the course, whichever is lesser.

Procedure and Eligibility:

  • Students must fulfill the necessary requirements for getting promoted to the next academic year of their courses.

Important Points to Note:

  • In case a student decides to change the field of study or course offered by the institute, then an attested document and a new offer letter submitted by the head of the institute should provide certification, allowing the student to change course within the institute.
  • In case, any student requests a change in course, the duration of the allotted course by SII must be the same as the changed course. For eg, if the student was allocated a 3-year B.Sc. (Physics) course by SII and he/she decides to change the allocated course then he/she can only opt for any 3-year course. In case of a change in course duration, the SII scholarship shall not be granted.
  • Also, if a student decides to change course from the allotted institute to a different institute, then the scholarship will not be transferred to the other institute or renewed for the following years.

The Withdrawal

The Study in India Scholarship will be revoked if a student joins the institute and then withdraws during the course duration. The student will have to pay for the duration of the course, according to the charges prescribed by the institute if their scholarship is revoked due to any reason.

Please Note: The SII Scholarship will be awarded only for AY 2022-23 and no scholarship shall be granted from next year.
