UIT offers a number of Scholarships, Grants and Awards to brilliant and needy students. It also offers concessions for siblings (existing student’s brother or sister) and children of UIT’s staff members.
Named after our deceased Usman Sahib, every year six gold medals are awarded to top graduating students in each of the degree programs. This is accompanied by a cash award of Rs. 25,000 and a merit certificate. The student with the highest CGPA on graduation in a discipline (e.g. BE EL Power or BS Software Engineering etc.) will be the winner. In case of a tie between two or more students, the student with the higher number of A grades will be declared winner.
Starting from the year 2020 two graduating students from the 2016 batch, one each from the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and the Bachelor of Computer Science will be awarded fully funded scholarships to do Masters abroad. The selection would be on the basis of obtaining the highest CGPA in their respective disciplines. These students must attain a minimum CGPA of 3.85 to be selected for these awards. From 2020 onwards, this would become an annual affair.
The scholarship includes full tuition fee waiver. Top three students on the Admission Test Merit List would be eligible for this scholarship for the first semester. In addition, continuing students who attain at least 3.85 CGPA would be eligible for this scholarship. Three students from each batch (i.e. 12 per semester) would be awarded these scholarships based on the order of merit.
Hasham Foundation Scholarship would be awarded on need-cum-merit basis. Top three students on the Admission Test Merit List who can (1) establish financial need and (2) are not availing the Hajiani Amina Hasham Meritorious Scholarship would be eligible for this scholarship. In addition, continuing student who maintain at least 3.5 CGPA would be eligible for this scholarship. Three students from each batch (i.e. 12 per semester) would be awarded these scholarships based on the order of merit.
UIT also offers tuition fee concessions for siblings (existing student’s brother or sister) and children of UIT’s staff members. In the case of siblings, one student pays full and the other gets 50% concession in the tuition fee. Only those siblings would be eligible for this scholarship who have maintained at least 2.0 GPA without any F Grade in the last semester. While, staff members get 85% tuition fee concession for their children.
The responsibility to establish the financial 'need' rests with the students. Students are advised to explore alternate funding sources before applying to UIT. An evidence of such an effort should form a part of application for financial assistance. Absence from or failure in any examination, lack of progress and assiduity in studies, breach of discipline or reprehensible conduct shall entail the loss of financial aid granted to any student.
