It is our endeavour to provide need-based financial support for college education to as many students as we can. However, the available funds are never enough. Hence we proactively seek support.
College Fee: Potential Donors who want to give one time contribution towards College Fee of students in a particular course may refer to the Course Fee (hyperlink).
Hostel Fee: Potential Donors who want to give one time contribution towards College Fee of students in a particular course may refer to the Course Fee (hyperlink).
Private Accommodation Charges: The college hostel can accommodate only 10% of the total number of students admitted. Thus most undergraduates as well as all post graduate students are required to seek private housing or compete for limited seats in University Hostels outside Miranda House. Many are unable to pay even the college fee. Meeting their living expenses is a big challenge. The new thrust is to increase the endowments for resident or outstation students in private accommodations. Our endeavor is to find private donors matched to the needs of individual students in this category.
Financial Support to Students with Disability: In the academic year 2016-17 the college has on rolls 69 students with disability. Of these, ** are visually challenged, ** are orthopedically challenged and ** have other forms of disability. They are exempt from paying course fee. The college has proactively been seeking scholarships and special awards to support their education and augment resources available to them. The college instituted the first scholarship for visually challenged students in 2005. It now has ** awards of Rs. 5000 each and 03 awards of Rs. 10,000 each. It seeks to institute more awards through generous support channels.
Although the constitutional requirement is to provide 3% reservation of seats in the hostel to students with disability, as part of affirmative action, Miranda House currently has ** instead of mandated ** 15 students in residence. They are exempted from payment of all fees except WUS Membership for health services and 50% of Hostel Mess Fee. This is tantamount to financial support of about Rs. 10 lakh per annum for students in residence. The college seeks donors to contribute towards this initiative.
