IIT Madras grants admission to 87 school students in BS program

Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) granted admission to 87 students from government and corporate schools. These students have been admitted to the BS program of the institute under the ‘Anaivarukkum IITM’ initiative.

Out of these 87 students, 39 are women, and students have been selected from more than 20 districts of Tamil Nadu. These children have received admissions for the Bachelor of Data Science and Applications, a four-year course that was introduced by IIT Madras in 2021 with the aim of making the Institute’s quality education accessible.

This opportunity has been provided under the ‘Anaivarukkum IITM’ initiative. It is an initiative where IIT Madras selected and supported a select cohort of 192 students from 58 government and corporate schools in and around Chennai. Based on the progressive learning outcomes shown during a 14-week face-to-face training at IIT Madras, 68 students were shortlisted to take the Pan-India Qualifying Examination for admission to the BS degree.

With this initiative, the institute aims to make quality education affordable and available to everyone. Under this initiative, IIT Madras also offers income-based scholarships of up to 75% for students pursuing undergraduate degrees. In addition, students who qualified through a collaborative effort with the Tamil Nadu Adi Dravidar Housing Development Corporation (TAHDCO) will receive full financial support from the Government of Tamil Nadu.
