Scholarships are an important facet of any educational institution. These acknowledge merit and support need. CCH has a noble history of awarding scholarships to sustain a cadet’s education, awarding these on the basis of specific criteria. Over a period, especially with the establishment of CCHEFT, a need has arisen to re-evaluate, streamline and consolidate diverse aspects of Scholarships at CCH with a view to reflecting the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award.
The purpose of this chapter is to collate and upgrade different features of Scholarships at CCH providing a rationalised policy therein within the ambit of creating a sense of accomplishment amongst cadets by acknowledging excellence and helping others to complete their time in CCH with dignity.
CCH has limited financial assistance/scholarships available for deserving students. Once the rigorous selection process is completed, we receive detailed applications from finally selected students. Those are scrutinised as per merit and financial information. Scholarships / Financial aid are decided accordingly and cannot be guaranteed for all applicants at any stage before/after joining the College. All such financial awards are treated as Qarz-e-Hasna”.
Academic performance-based Merit scholarships for top students are also available after evaluations at the end of each year of study at the College.

These are based upon post admission Internal and external annual assessments
