SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE INFORMATION

IBA is committed in:
- Providing quality education to all the Students (other than Evening / Part-Time Programs) admitted to the IBA and - Ensuring that no deserving Student is denied Admissions because of Financial Difficulty / Constraints.
IBA offers Financial Assistance to deserving Students in the form of Financial Assistances and Loans. No Applicant who qualifies the Admission Test and fulfils other requirements is refused Admission because of inability to afford the Costs of the Programs at the Institute. IBA has a dedicated Financial Aid Office and Financial Assistance Committee who administer all Students Financial Need related affairs throughout the year. A Financial Assistance Committee scrutinizes Applications of Students seeking Financial Aid and sanctions assistance for those who demonstrate need.
Financial Aid shall be offered to Eligible Applicants who have been assessed to be needy. This is in the form of a “Financial Aid Package” which is designed based on the recognition that an education in the Institute is a partnership involving the Student, his / her family and the Institute. Packages include ‘Merit Scholarships’ which become part of entitlement for those Students who obtain Merit Position during their Aptitude Test and their names are among Top 10% of the Applicants in the result of the Aptitude Test.

Financial Aid Packages
Financial Aid Packages include the Following:
a. Installment Plan:
In principle, Tuition Fee for Each Semester is payable in Full; those Students, who are not able to Pay the Due Fee in Full, may apply to Director Finance for Installment Method of Payment.
There are Two Main Types of Equal Installment Plans:
• Plan (A) Three Installments
• Plan (B) Five Installments
 Student can apply for any of the Two Plans. These Installments must be paid within the Same Semester period.
The Director Finance shall approve the Application after ensuring the Need of the Student.
Whatever Plan is opted by the Student, he / she is preferred to make Payment of Installments by giving post-dated Cheques for the agreed Dates.

b. Deferment of Fees:
- In case Student did not pay his / her Total Fee within a particular Semester then the Director Finance shall send a request letter to the Student to pay the outstanding amount due.
- The Director Finance may call the Student and if circumstances suggest his / her parents may also be called to evaluate the Financial Position of the Student to reach to the amicable solution for the recovery of Fee. Student shall also be directed to avail other options available in “Financial Aid Package”, which are discussed later in this document.
- If there is no other option available and the circumstances necessitate, the Director Finance may Defer the Payment of Fee to a certain Date.
- In all cases when Fee is overdue for payment of any Semester, Director Finance shall always write to Student and ask for payment of dues.
- If Student is unable to pay in Full then as a first step the Finance Department shall compel the Student to make payment through Post-Dated Cheques.
- Post-Dated Cheque should be cleared within the same Semester period, so that the Student's amount is cleared before the Admission to the next Semester.
- If any of the Post-Dated Cheques is dishonored and Student is unable to pay against those Dishonored Cheques than Director Finance may call the Student / Parents of the Student for settlement of dues before the start of the next Semester.

c. Need-Based Financial Assistance / Scholarships:
- There are Numbers of Scholarships available which are awarded to Needy Students only and are based on the assessed Need Level.
- No Applicant who qualifies the Admission Test and fulfills other requirements shall be refused Admission because of inability to afford the cost of the Program at the Institute.
- Scholarship Committee scrutinizes the Application along with supporting documents submitted by the Students seeking Financial Aid and scores their Need Level against laid down criteria; compares it to the Need Level of other Applicants to assesses the level of assistance that can be made available on the basis of available Funds.
 
d. Merit Scholarships:
- Merit Scholarship are extended to candidates who have scored high enough for their names to fall in the Top 10% of the list of candidates appearing in Aptitude Test and thereafter qualifying to be admitted to the Morning Programs. The list of these candidates is published at the culmination of the Admission Process i.e. qualifying Aptitude Test, Group Discussion, and Interview and providing proof of having met the Minimum Academic Eligibility standards for the concerned Program. These Candidates will be automatically awarded a 50% reduction in their Tuition Fee.
- It will, however be obligatory / incumbent on such Candidates to maintain a CGPA of 3.5 on completion of every Two Semesters each year. Inability to maintain the said CGPA will render the concerned Merit Scholarship holder ineligible for continuing of the Merit Scholarship in the remaining Semesters.
- In the event of a Student losing his standing for Merit Scholarship, and regaining the required CGPA in any subsequent Semester; the Student will again become eligible for Merit Scholarship in the next Semester but will not be entitled to claim the same for the preceding Semester. Number of Scholarship slots released as a result of this discontinuation (as mentioned above) will be made available to the Toppers (maintaining highest CGPA) in the Dean’s Honor List for that particular Academic Year. New Merit Scholars are also required to maintain minimum CGPA of 3.5 at each completed year for continuation of Merit Scholarship, i.e. other rules for continuation / discontinuation of Merit Scholarship, as mentioned in above, will also apply to these New Scholars.

e. Study Loans:
- IBA also facilitates its Students in securing Loans to meet their Tuition Fee. These may be Interest Free Loans (Qarz-e-Hasna) to facilitate Students during the course of their study. Applications for such Loans will be invited from amongst Candidates who have already applied for ‘Need-Based Scholarship’ but could not meet the criteria for the same.
