Currently ISMAANA has two types of ongoing scholarship programs.

  1. Merit Scholarships: Eight final year students were awarded ISMAANA merit scholarship earlier this year. ISMAANA started these scholarships in 2015 to recognize top two students in four earth science branches based on first three years’ academic performance. As our funds permit, we plan to extend these scholarships to other branches of study. The picture alongside shows merit scholarship winners receiving the award along with faculty advisers.
  2. Merit cum means scholarships: These scholarships started in 2017 and currently ISMAANA has alumni commitment for 50 such scholarships that are based on family income and academic performance. Amount of these scholarships range from $1000/year to $1370/year. These scholarships are intended to mainly cover student expenses related to room, board, and transportation. During the current academic year 38 such scholarships were awarded to undergraduate students. Scholarship donors with number of committed scholarships in parenthesis are: Naresh Vashisht (20), Avinash Ahuja (10), Suresh Chugh (4), Mohinder Gulati (1), Pramod Thakur (1), Jatinder Tuli (1) Dipak Sarkar (1), Zoeb Mogri (1), Shishir Agrawal (1), Yugal Gupta (2), Mahendra Verma (2), Atul Arya (1), Sriram Muralidharan (1), and Raj Prasad (1).
