SIMS awards merit and merit cum means based scholarships for the eligible MBA students at SIMS. These scholarships have constituted after the name of IDET founder chairman late Mar James Pazhayattil, the first bishop of the Diocese of Irinjalakuda. Following his words, SIMS creates avenues for MBA aspirants to proudly complete their MBA program by earning the SIMS scholarship award. SIMS has designed a fair and transparent process for identifying the winners of the scholarship. Merit based scholarships are awarded based the pre-determined score in MBA entrance tests (CAT/CMAT/KMAT) score. The institute (Sahrdaya Institute of Management Studies - SIMS) calls for applications and submissions in this regard. Procedurally, the applicants have to attend two rounds of interviews wherein the panel members would be internal as well as external. By collaborating with suitable external panel members, SIMS reduces the likelihood of subjectivity in decision making and also increases the fairness in the processes. The identified students will earn a scholarship worth maximum Rs. 50000/-. SIMS does not limit the number of winners per se, but share the benefit to the most deserving candidates applied for the scholarship. On an average, the institute shares Rs. 5 lakhs per annum for the purpose of awarding scholarships. Besides the aforementioned scholarships from the side of the management, the students can compete for the TMA-DLB student scholarship worth Rs. 50,000/ organized by Thrissur Management Association (TMA) under the patronage of All India Management Association (AIMA). Also, the eligible students can apply in Government portals facilitated by various ministries and departments under State and Central Governments. The institute would facilitate the processes by sharing timely information regarding various scholarships.
