IIIT Hyd calls for new measures to improve gender diversity

IIIT-Hyderabad has decided to take positive steps to improve the gender ratio among its undergraduate students. Towards this goal, the institute has set a target of 25% representation of girls among students admitted to the 4-year B.Tech program through the JEE mode of admission for 2020-2021. Several measures are being taken to facilitate this, including:

  • Introduction of scholarships, fellowships, and a partial waiver of tuition for girl students
  • Partial/full waiver of application fee; and
  • Establishment of a diverse pool of seats for the JEE mode of admission.

Events will also be organized at various points in the admissions season to publicize what the institute offers in terms of academics, extra-curricular activities, scholarship opportunities, and residential facilities.
