Ashoka University is committed to making its world-class education accessible & affordable for students from all walks of life. This is made possible through our need-based Financial Aid philosophy.
While admission to Ashoka University is based on academics, extra-curricular activities and other holistic principles, financial aid is assessed entirely on the basis of the financial standing of the student’s family.
A candidate’s ability to pay is assessed based on various financial resources available to their immediate family, including current income, savings, investments, and education loans , to finance the expected educational cost. Our endeavour is to provide necessary financial support which can help admitted candidates bridge the gap between the cost of the programme and their ability to pay.
A financial aid commitment of INR 418 crores raised through collective philanthropy has helped over 4100 students achieve their dreams by availing financial aid from the institution.
