UPES has been giving a 20% scholarship to female students for undergraduate programmes for the academic year 2021-22, bridging the opportunity gap from the classroom to the boardroom.

This scholarship will cover the first year of tuition expenses for any female students who enrol at UPES in 2021 and achieve a minimum of 70% in their Class XII Board exams.

Last year, the Shakti scholarship programme helped 1300 Indian female students gain access to high-quality higher education through financial aid. Girl students and their families from Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Maharashtra, and Jharkhand flooded the university with applications. The majority of them chose undergrad and graduate programmes in computer science, engineering, and health sciences.

UPES has also offered substantial scholarships to genuine Uttarakhand citizens. It has been offering a 33 percent tuition fee discount to Uttarakhand state board toppers. Visit for further information.

“I want all my dreams to come true, and UPES, through its Shakti scholarship is supporting me to do that and more,” says Alisha Farheen, a student at the School of Health Sciences. “One day, when I narrate my story to someone, I will tell them how this scholarship changed my life forever,” she gleams.

“My father was about to take an education loan for my under graduation. Just when hope seemed to recede, I learnt about the Shakti scholarship UPES was offering. I am honoured to have received it. It has not only been an immense financial help for my family, but it has also provided me the support to pursue my dream of studying engineering,” says Tisha Goswami from UPES School of Engineering.

In 2016, after her father had a paralytic attack, life took a new turn for Aayushi Verma. “There was hardly any hope and I could barely see any light coming through. But as they say, good things happen when we least expect them. UPES offered me a 100% scholarship which covered hostel fees, uniforms, books, industrial visits and other expenses.”
