Several scholarships are available at SAIACS to assist students from varied backgrounds. If you are interested in partnering through scholarship support, you can choose to sponsor a scholarship fully or in part. Payments may be made one time or in instalments.

Each year, SAIACS awards up to four academic scholarships for the highest achievers in the SAIACS entrance examination: two for MA applicants and two for MTh applicants. The Pandita Ramabai Merit Scholarships are given only for first-year study.
- AIMM Fund
Contribution to the Alumni Impacting Ministries in the Making (AIMM) Fund is received exclusively from alumni of SAIACS. The purpose of this fund is to extend support to the most deserving of students and also to provide an opportunity for alumni to partner with SAIACS through regular and systematic giving. An alumnus is encouraged to contribute a sum of Rs 100/- a month or Rs 1000/- a year, or any amount regularly every year. Queries regarding pledge and mode of transfer of funds can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Sahaya Scholarship
Each year, SAIACS awards up to six needs-based scholarships for deserving students from poor economic backgrounds who give evidence of requiring financial assistance in order to take up an academic place at SAIACS. These students must also explain their vision for why they want to study and demonstrate potential to succeed in an MA or MTh programme. Sahaya Scholarships are applicable for only one year and must be reapplied for each year.

Five students each year are awarded this scholarship. You can support a student fully or contribute some portion of their fees.
(Rs 1,20,000/- per annum per student)
- Legacy Fund
The Legacy fund is an endowment fund that provides an opportunity for donors to leave behind a legacy of student support for perpetuity. The exponential impact of this support is immeasurable as it not only honours the memory and passion of a dear one but also touches multiple ministries formed in SAIACS for generations to come.
A donor can institute a Legacy Fund in their own name or in the name of a family member or friend if they contribute a minimum of Rs 1,00,000/- in a calendar year. This can also be paid in instalments. One can add on to the corpus amount in subsequent years. The corpus amount will not be liquidated. Only the interest accrued will be utilised toward support for a scholarship/fees for a deserving student. If the donor wishes to remain anonymous, they can contribute any amount to the General Legacy Fund.
(Rs 1,00,000/- in a calendar year for specific Legacy Fund or any amount to General Legacy Fund)
- Student Fee Support
Partners can support students who are unable to pay their fees due to unforeseen circumstances. Most of our students are self-supporting, so when there is illness, death, or financial crisis in their families or with their supporters they often are not able to keep their financial commitment. You can assist by contributing a portion of their fees.
- SAIACS Sundays
As part of its efforts to engage the Christian community, SAIACS ministers in various churches by leading praise and worship, bringing God’s Word, and sharing testimonies. This provides an opportunity for congregations to become aware of the ministry of SAIACS, and also helps our students to interact with local churches and build relationships. You can further these efforts by inviting the SAIACS team to minister in your church.
