Frequently Asked Questions
Vidyasiri-Food and Accommodation Scholarship Scheme (VFAS) is specifically designed for students from backward classes pursuing post-matric courses in government, local, aided, and recognized private institutions affiliated with statutory universities in Karnataka. The scheme requires students to link their Aadhaar number to their bank account.

To be eligible for the scheme, students must be citizens of India and permanent residents of Karnataka. They should belong to backward classes listed by the Government of India or the State Government. Students who have not secured admission in any departmental or government-funded student hostel and are studying in post-matric courses are eligible to apply.

The scheme provides a monthly stipend of Rs. 1,500 for 10 months, totaling Rs. 15,000 per annum, which is directly credited to the students' bank accounts. The income of the student's family should fall within specific limits based on the category they belong to. The eligibility criteria also include minimum marks required in the previous year's annual examination for fresh and renewal students.
