Performance-Based Scholarships & Certificates

This policy has two parts as follow:

  • Certificates of appreciations will be given to all students who scores 1st and 2nd position in their program and session only. For example, for certificate of appreciation 1st and 2nd position will be picked only from BS Business Administration Spring 2013. They will not be merged with any other batch for certification.
  • Performance based scholarships and medals awarded to talented students who are pursuing an four or two years undergraduate or graduate (16 Years). The scholarship is awarded to top 1st position holders in every batch/program/School who score minimum Semester GPA of 3.5. The award of scholarship would be based on (a) combination of Fall and Spring semesters and (b) minimum of 50 students in a batch. Following are the details:
  • Fall and Spring semesters batches of the same program would be combined. For example, Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 would be considered as one batch under a particular program, say BBA.
  • If the strength of students in a particular batch and program is less than 50 then another program of similar nature may be combined for the award of scholarship. For example, if number of students in each of BS (CS) and BS (SE) are less than 50 then the students of the two programs may be combined and considered as one batch.

The 1st position holder would be awarded 50% scholarship in the form of tuition fee for the subsequent semester only. This scholarship would be on top of other scholarships/fee waivers that university may have already granted to the student but not exceeding 100% tuition amount in total.

Note: This policy will be superseding all other policies regarding “Performance Based Scholarship” with effective from Fall 2016. The toppers of Spring 2016’s examination will be evaluated based on this policy in Fall 2016.
