IIIT Hyderabad has decided to take steps to "improve" the gender ratio among its undergraduate students.
The institute has set a target of 25% girl students in the 4-year B. Tech. program through the JEE (Mains) mode of admission for 2020-2021.
Several measures are being taken to facilitate this, including introduction of scholarships, fellowships, and partial waiver of tuition for girl students; partial/full waiver of application fee; and establishment of a diversity 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 for girls.
The last date for applications is May 19, 2020. For more details, please visit https://www.iiit.ac.in/admissions/undergraduate/
