Scholarships & TAship

Kautilya offers up to 100% need-based scholarships in the form of tuition fee waivers to deserving candidates. Students seeking scholarships are encouraged to choose the scholarship option in the application form. Your scholarship application will not influence your acceptance to the program. The scholarship will be granted for 1st year only. Continuation of the scholarship in 2nd year will be purely based upon student academic performance and code of conduct.


Apart from the scholarships, students will get a chance to explore their passion through a Teaching Assistantship (TA), which is provisioned for the Final Year students of Kautilya School of Public Policy. This is an opportunity for students to subsidize their fees through Teaching Assistantship.
