What is Kyoorius Grant?

Most of the design colleges have a Degree/Diploma project that a student has to execute within a strict time frame. Due to these time constraints, students often opt for a part of a whole project or realize at a later stage that the scope of the project is much larger. These projects often also stay incomplete or unexplored as there is not enough financial support. This is where we come into the picture.

Kyoorius Grant has been formulated with a vision to help passionate students meaningfully conclude their final year projects. The Grant aims to empower students in shaping and completing their final graduation projects. Our mission is to provide a platform which will help students in validating their hard work and dedication that goes into their final year projects by realizing them to their true and full potential.
