Press Release -Direct online admissions and scholarships amidst corona virus pandemic
Dev Bhoomi Group of Institutions (DBGI), Dehradun, initiates direct online admissions and scholarships amidst coronavirus pandemic
Friday, May 15th, 2020, Dehradun: Amidst COVID-19 challenge and the closure of the campus, Dehradun’s premier self-governed institute, Dev Bhoomi Group of Institutions (DBGI) has prepared a contingency plan to begin the admission process of the new academic session. The institute is mulling several alternatives, including direct online admissions and a range of scholarships worth Rs. 3 crore and 8 crores, respectively.
Although the idea is to ease the admission process for the students in view of the situation stemming out of the pandemic, the core aim remains to also help those aspirants whose parents have played a major role in combating COVID-19. It is learned that the scholarship amounting to Rs. 8 crores is accessible to all, and the one, worth Rs. 3 crores, can be availed by those with parents in the front line of the coronavirus fight. The students can seek admissions by applying on the official site of DBGI before 25th May, 2020, and by paying Rs. 1500 for the application fee.
According to the officials, only residents of Uttarakhand can apply for the aforementioned direct admission and reap the benefits of 100% domicile scholarship. For those who wish to apply for an undergraduate program can participate with the help of their X mark sheet and for the post-graduate program, the pre-semester marks will suffice the need.
“In the present scenario, it has become vital to have initiatives that aid students and their parents, and also an admission process that eliminates the need to be present at the campus physically. Realizing this urgent need, we took the essential conscious decision in favor of the students so that the academic session slated to begin in June or July will commence seamlessly. With respect to the scholarships, the updates and declarations will be updated on the official site from time to time,” said Mr. Aman Bansal, MD, Dev Bhoomi Group of Institutions (DBGI).
To further smoothen the process, DBGI has enabled an ‘Ask Your Query’ section on its website for students and their parents to have their doubts resolved in real-time. Besides, the institute has also generated a toll-free contact number for those seeking an instant response.
Other than this, the institute has geared up to move to online courses should the need arise in the near future. At the same time, DBGI has expedited an effective transition to a model of online teaching to aid classes to be accessed and conducted from remote locations instead of classrooms. They are hopeful that the implementation of this contingency plan will prevent the spilling over of works in the time to come.
