Financial Aid + Scholarship
Kathmandu University (KU) has been providing various scholarships to a number of its meritorious and needy students in order to encourage and to promote for quality education for leadership. Several financial Support Schemes in KU have helped to maintain high academic standard. As generating supports from all sections of society is the basic principle involved in financing the development and operating costs of the university, our policy is to encourage all sectors to contribute to the scholarship fund to be utilized for financially weak but meritorious students. In order to fulfill its aim and objectives, KU has presently operating following school wise scholarship programs.
Scholarships in KU SOA (for students in KU School of Arts Programs)
It is focused for meritorious and needy (economically weak) students successfully admitted in KU Undergraduate programs. For each 24 fee paying students, student will be admitted on full or partial scholarship(equivalent to the fee of one student).This scholarship is provided to 1st year students at the time of admission, first time on need basis and then based on their academic performance reviewing annually. They need to maintain a minimum total GPA of 3.0 to continue in each academic year. Also, it will not be regular for students who have to appear compartmental exams and who does not maintain discipline.
KU Educational Loan:
Under this category, an educational loan will be provided to the selected students enabling them to meet 25% to 50% of total fees charged by the university. This educational load depends on available fund in each UNG program of SOA as per KU rule. It is required that the student must sign a contract paper with the university (as a bond paper) for its refund. Other conditions are same as that in KU scholarship. The number of this educational loan offered in this scheme depends upon the available scholarship fund which in turn is dependent on the return/payment of the loan received by students in earlier years.
