Since its establishment, St. Mary’s University has created scholarship opportunities to the disadvantaged section of the society. Of the beneficiaries, young women and prisoners take the lead in large numbers. They have used a significant portion of the free scholarships that were announced on annual basis. Due to the increasing number of applications and the limited financial resources we have, the scholarship opportunities are getting highly competitive; but still the academically bright but disadvantaged students will have a greater chance of securing scholarship.
