IIM Bangalore 2024: Financial Aids and Scholarships

Financial Aids

Financial help is provided by IIMB to deserving students. Ensuring that no student is denied an education at IIMB due to financial constraints is the goal of the financial aid policy of the university.

Any PGP student who makes less than INR 800,000 a year in their family income is qualified to apply for financial help. IIM Bangalore also take into consideration those students who have serious financial challenges as a result of unexpected events that happened suddenly.

The Financial money Committee decides the amount of money to be given and the number of grantees in two steps.

  1. In the first step, students receive a financial status score based on four factors: Annual Gross Household Income (which includes the student's income if they were employed prior to joining IIMB and any outstanding loans, as long as they weren't taken for conspicuous consumption), Household Savings, Real Estate Assets, and Other Assets.
  2. Based on this score, a faculty panel will contact some students for in-person interactions, where they will assess the students' financial need and determine whether the information they submitted on their application was truthful. The faculty panel will then assign a financial need score based on the weighted average of these two scores. Applicants will receive 100%, 80%, 60%, 40%, or 20% financial aid.


Apart from Financial Aid, which is granted only on the basis of financial need, PGP students are also awarded many scholarships based on merit or merit plus need, as explained below:

  1. Aditya Birla Scholarship: PGP candidates in both their first and second year are eligible for this merit-based award.
