Scholarships

The financial strategy of the institute places student development as a key priority. A considerable sum from NIFT Development Fund is effectively put to use in this core area every year. To maximize the potential of its students, the institute's Means-cum-Merit Financial Assistance scheme allows students from humble backgrounds to avail subsidized tuition fee at every Campus. Determined by the parental income, students can fall into three slabs of monetary assistance. Many students in the past have benefited from this scheme. Further, many leading organisations from the apparel sector have come forward to encourage NIFT students in their academic and creative quest. Pioneers in the related field have instituted awards & scholarships namely ITC, HomeShop 18 etc. to recognize and compliment academic brilliance. This provides motivation to the students, from their first year of study.NIFT Means cum Merit Financial Assistance Scheme.Means cum Merit Financial Assistance Scheme and Education Loan.

    I've been a student at NIFT for 3 years now, started out my journey as thinking it would be all fun and games, it's not. Usually, we have a perception of fashion being an easy option. Trust me that's not how it'll be. There are endless sleepless nights, hostel life, work, but it's all worth it. The college has given me a lot more than just basic education. So if you're signing up for it, make sure you do it because you're interested- not because math/science is difficult for you.
