The right to Education is one of the fundamental rights of every Indian citizen. Marian College Kuttikkanam (Autonomous) believes that money should not be a roadblock for a student with innovative ideas in his mind and passion in his heart. We are committed to ensuring that no student is left out of their educational opportunity at Marian because of financial constraints. Through a two-fold strategy, the college tries to ensure equity and justice in providing financial and other assistance to the student community. The two-fold strategy involves
1. Assistance to avail government and other scholarships from external agencies
2. Scholarships, financial assistance, and freeships on merit cum means basis instituted by the institution.
This strategy is put into action through a transparent and participatory system of implementation involving Management, Teaching faculty, office staff, and students.
