About the Scholarship
Economic hardship or a crisis in the family sometimes has a direct impact on the education of children, often resulting in the child dropping out of school/college/university. ECSS has been conceptualized to provide assistance to these students, to tide over a difficult situation/Personal/Family Crisis without adverse impact on their education.
Therefore, HDFC Scholarship is an initiative by the HDFC Bank to help students in times of crisis such as the death of a parent, life-threatening illness, or loss of job of the earning parent, etc.
Students in 6th to 12th standard are eligible to apply, on the merit-cum-need basis, with a family income of less than 3 Lakhs per annum, or family facing a critical financial situation in the past 2 years.
