BITS, Pilani, is among the top-rated institutions in India, and aspiring youth dream of getting admission here. However many middle-class and lower-middle-class students fear whether they can afford the total expenses including the fees for the full course period.
I would like to make awareness that, meritorious needy students get various kinds of scholarships, grants, or concessions under various categories from different sources.

BITS Pilani itself has its schemes to help meritorious and needy students with its various scholarship/fee concessions. Thus they give the benefit of scholarship/concession/financial assistance ranging from 15% to 100% based on the qualifying scores, academic performance, and also as per statutory and other category assistances. It is understood from previous years that almost one-third of the students get such benefits.
Specific and more details can be obtained along with the admission structure and fees from the BITS website- at relevant times.

Apart from the BITS own schemes, there are many other scholarships and educational financial assistance available from various governmental(State and Centre) departments and welfare boards, NGOs, community organisations, and corporate houses under their CSR and community welfare schemes.
Many philanthropic individuals and associations also help needy students.

Hence I suggest, prospective students not worry about whether they can afford to study in BITS Pilani, but instead, focus on their studies and preparation for the relevant entrance test and score high and try to get into higher ranks. Once assured admission, they can first approach BITS authorities, and seeking their help and guidance they will be able to avail of any scholarships/fee concession/financial assistance for pursuing the course.
There is also the avenue of applying for an education loan from banks, in any case. So once more I suggest students proceed with sincerity and focus on studies and preparation for the entrance test if any, to get top scores and ensure admission and even scholarships.
