When a scholarship is awarded to a student, a chain of change begins. The students receiving the scholarships go on to live fulfilling lives and create a positive impact in the society. There is a clear effect of financial aid on the retention, academic success, and graduation rates of students in higher education. The scholarship programs at UPES have been designed to ensure that economic circumstances do not prevent a student from pursuing their academic goals.

How UPES scholarships have benefitted students over the years
“I want all my dreams to come true, and UPES, through its Shakti scholarship is supporting me to do that and more,” says Alisha Farheen, a student at the School of Health Sciences. “One day, when I narrate my story to someone, I will tell them how this scholarship changed my life forever,” she gleams.
“My father was about to take an education loan for my under graduation. Just when hope seemed to recede, I learnt about the Shakti scholarship UPES was offering. I am honoured to have received it. It has not only been an immense financial help for my family, but it has also provided me the support to pursue my dream of studying engineering,” says Tisha Goswami from UPES School of Engineering.
In 2016, after her father had a paralytic attack, life took a new turn for Aayushi Verma. “There was hardly any hope and I could barely see any light coming through. But as they say, good things happen when we least expect them. UPES offered me a 100% scholarship which covered hostel fees, uniforms, books, industrial visits and other expenses.”
These are some of the several brilliant and confident students who have made the most out of the UPES scholarships. As an institution, UPES sees the scholarships as a partnership between the students, their families, and the university. The range of scholarships is designed to help passionate and meritorious students realise their academic dreams and enhance their higher education experience.
