Delhi University’s Financial Support Scheme Benefits Over 1,000 Students

    Delhi University (DU) has successfully provided financial aid to more than 1,000 students through its Financial Support Scheme (FSS), amounting to Rs 1 crore. The scheme aims to offer fee waivers to students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

    Financial Aid Breakdown

    Under DU FSS, students are eligible for fee waivers based on their family income:

    • Students with family income less than Rs 4,00,000 receive a 100% fee waiver
    • Students with a family income between Rs 4,00,000 to Rs 8,00,000 receive a 50% fee waiver

    Professor Pankaj Arora, DU’s Dean of Students Welfare, highlighted that the FSS procedures were finalized under the guidance of registrar Vikas Gupta. After collecting necessary data from deserving candidates and conducting thorough verification, including home visits, the list of students for disbursement of fee waivers was finalized.

    Reflecting Government’s Motto

    The FSS aligns with the government’s “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas” motto. DU Vice Chancellor, Professor Yogesh Singh, envisioned the noble initiative, assigning the task of executing the scheme to the Office of the Dean of Students’ Welfare as its nodal office.

    Eligibility Criteria

    A full-time, bonafide student studying at any department or institution of DU belonging to the two aforementioned categories is eligible to apply for the scheme. However, candidates with ER (Essential Repeat) or arrears from previous examination papers are not eligible to apply.

    With the success of the FSS, Delhi University continues to prioritize the needs of economically disadvantaged students, helping them access quality education without financial barriers.
