Scholarship And Freeship

Scholarships – Need based and Merit based -have been offered to students since the inception of the college work.

A committee looking into it was formed in the early eighties to formalize the process of supporting the needy students and felicitating students for their excellent academic performances. Eventually students excelling in extra-curricular and co curricular activities were also added to the objectives of the committee.


  • To offer financial aid and support to needy students for fees and freeships
  • To felicitate the toppers and rank holders at College and University level
  • To recognize the outstanding contribution of students in the fields of extra and co-curricular activities
  • To honour the teaching and non teaching faculty members for their recognition and
    outstanding contribution to their areas of specialization


Due to the COVID -19 pandemic and the lockdown crisis, many students had decided to drop out because of the financial crisis in the family owing to the losss of employment and jobs of parents.

The College took special initiatives and measures to convince parents to secure admissions of their daughters in the new academic year. Concession forms were distributed to students which were sent to a special email id for consideration. More than 100 students were given concession of 25 percent in fees. Instalment facilities were given to students. The fees of the students who could not pay the first instalment were paid by the college. One student was given total freeship.

The Scholarship committee organizes the Annual Degree Certificate distribution function. Eminent personalities are invited as Guest of Honour to felicitate our toppers. The rankers receive their Graduation degrees in the presence of August gathering which includes the members of Managing Committee, The Principal, Supervisor faculty members, Invitees and Parents. The dress code is as per University which is white colour. The University toppers are given trophies and certificates. The students are motivated by the inspiring and encouraging words of the Guests.
