NIIT University B.Tech. Admission 2016 Scholar Search Programme

In order to encourage and support meritorious candidates, NU has implemented a very distinctive scholarship programme called the ‘NU Scholar Search Programme’. The Programme offers four scholarship plans. The benefits under each plan are as follows:

Merit Scholarship Plan A (MS-A)

Under this plan, a candidate qualifies for a 100% scholarship on University Tuition Fee only (MS-A).

Merit Scholarship Plan B+ (MS-B+)

Under this plan, a candidate qualifies for a 75% scholarship on University Tuition Fee only (MS-B+).

Merit Scholarship Plan B (MS-B)

Under this plan, a candidate qualifies for a 50% scholarship on University Tuition Fee only (MS-B).

Merit Scholarship Plan C (MS-C)

Under this plan, a candidate qualifies for a 25% scholarship on University Tuition Fee only (MS-C).

The scholarships offered by NU are applicable for all four years in case of the B.Tech programme and all five years in case of the B.Tech-M.Tech Integrated Dual Degree programme, conditional to maintaining the required CGPA. The student is considered for a scholarship upgrade at the end of each academic year based on the actual CGPA achievement but the scholarship downgrade or withdrawal is only considered after every two academic years based on the actual CGPA achievement.

The boards have been categorized based on the performance of the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in his/her respective Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination. The score of the candidate in either class X or Class XII will be rounded off to the next nearest highest score. The eligibility for the NU Scholar Search Programme is as per Tables
