The Office of Financial Aid delivered on its mission to enable equal opportunities to study at Ashoka through its need based financial aid programme.
While over 49% of incoming students were on some form of Financial aid across all UG and PG programmes, 22% were awarded a full waiver on Tuition fee or more, taking the total financial aid commitment to Rs.320cr across 3700+ students who have benefited from this programme since 2011.
Additionally, 2021 also saw the launch of a separate COVID FAQ section on the website, to assist students in navigating the financial and logistical complexities relating to their financial matters impacted by COVID-19. This was further supported with open discussions with applicants and students via webinars and one-on-one sessions.
The team ensured that the financial aid process runs smoothly by aiding students on specific queries relating to procurement of documents, suggesting alternate options for mandatory documents and granting additional time for submitting the form.
