In the words of Dr.Nagesh Rao, the then President and Director, MICA “Higher education is expensive and many families have to take substantial bank loans to realise their children’s education dreams. MICA has launched this scheme to encourage students coming from lower income groups to apply to MICA and its programmes”. This is MICA’s small yet significant contribution towards a social cause and helping needy and meritorious students in their pursuit of higher education”.

The MICA Scholarships are awarded based on the students overall academic performance and family income. The scholarships are being awarded to students currently pursuing studies at MICA and benefit students both of the 2-year flagship programme Post-Graduate Diploma in Management - Strategic Marketing and Communication (PGDM(C) and the 1-year Crafting Creative Communication Certificate Programme (CCC).
