We at IDFC FIRST Bank see education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, communities, and nations. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) portfolio we provide financial assistance to meritorious students from economically weaker sections of the society to help them complete their degree in management.
As part of this program we provide ‘need-based’ scholarships of one lakh p.a. for two years to full time MBA students who have secured admissions in B-schools on their own merit. This scholarship is only available to students enrolled in B-schools and with a family income less than 6 lakhs p.a. It also helps these students to extend their reach to some of the best colleges/universities in India regardless of their financial situation.
379 students from top 100 B-schools across different states of India have been awarded the scholarship till date.
