Guwahati: Assam down town University’s (AdtU) Charity Trust is slowly changing the lives of those belonging to the most marginalised sections of society.
With an aim of uplifting the intellectual and cultural capital of the region, the AdtU has waived off semester fees of students who belong to Below Poverty Line (BPL) category.
The Post Matric Scholarship Scheme provides access to higher education to students belonging to the minority communities, and for those from SC, ST, OBC communities, the fees are marginally waived off.
Similarly, there are scholarship schemes for students applying from other parts of the country (other than the NorthEast), foreign nationals, and even for in-house students seeking to pursue undergraduate and post-graduate studies at the university.
Meritorious students securing from 80% to 90% and above in board and university examinations get the benefit of some of their semester fees being waived off.
Recently, the varsity also instituted a scheme to provide financial assistance to candidates who have been orphaned due to Covid-19, but want to continue their studies and enroll in the UG and PG study programmes.
An aspiring student has to fulfill a selection criterion and then he/she can avail the benefits.
Located at Panikhaiti, Chandrapur, the Assam down town University is also one of the best placement-driven universities in the region.
