AIMA announces scholarships

AIMA announces scholarships


THE All India Management Association (AIMA) has announced 30 scholarships for underprivileged students from this year. Students who clear the Management Aptitude Test (MAT), conducted by AIMA, and qualify for AIMA's postgraduate diploma in management (PGDM) or postgraduate diploma in information technology and management (PGDITM) through the distance learning mode would be eligible for these scholarships. 

   Elaborating on the scholarships, D N Rao, director, centre of management education (CME), AIMA, said: "We would award 30 scholarships annually to economically weaker students enrolled in CME's distance learning programmes. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we would offer these scholarships to students whose parents earn less than Rs 2 lakh per-annum so that these students can obtain postgraduate qualifications." 

   Both PGDM and PGDITM comprise four modules and the total cost of the programmes is Rs 76,000 and Rs 1,20,000, respectively. The cost is divided into equal parts per-module. AIMA would initially offer the scholarships to eligible students in the first module and then extend it on the basis of their academic performance. "If their academic performance merits it, then the total cost of the course can be covered by this scholarship," informed Rao. 

   The association plans to increase the number of scholarships from the next session in January. "However, this is still a proposal and the final decision would be taken in August. If approved, the number of scholarships would be increased to 50," added Rao. Besides, AIMA also plans to introduce a PG diploma in financial planning and a PG diploma in management from January. The scholarships would be extended to these new programmes as well.
