Smt Sakarbai K Somaiya Memorial & Smt Mayadevi S Somaiya need based Scholarships


Smt Sakarbai K Somaiya: It is said, behind every successful man stands a wise, understanding and encouraging woman. Smt Sakarbai Somaiya was a pillar and a strong support system for her husband, Somaiya Vidyavihar's founder, Pujya K J Somaiya. She truly materialised the Sanskrit verse 'atithi devo bhava' and anyone that visited their home was treated as God. Her devotion to serve was not restricted to guests alone, she provided food and unconditional care and fulfilled the needs of the underprivileged. She rightfully earned the name 'Annapoorna'.


Smt Mayadevi S Somaiya : A fond lover of Indian music and an exceptional singer with a soulful voice, Smt Mayadevi Somaiya, besides cultivating her skill set with utmost dedication always promoted Indian music. She had an art to recognise exceptional talent before the world recognised them. Almost all the present and yesteryears famous classical singers have performed at her residence in the nascent stages of their career. Continuing the Somaiya family's legacy of kindness and devotion to society, Smt Mayadevi Somaiya, mother of Somaiya Vidyavihar's President Shri Samir Somaiya, through this scholarship would like to motivate and inspire students to pursue their education and excel in life.


The Somaiya need based scholarship is a program that sponsors students that lack financial support to complete their education and have limited access to other government scholarships’ & loans. Priority will be given to candidates with a marked socio-economic disadvantage. Need based scholarship is awarded every year only but student may reapply each year.


  • Candidate must demonstrate proven financial need and be able to provide evidence of their financial accounts.
  • Candidates must be asked to submit additional documents during application or interview process.
  • Candidate should be student of somaiya vidyavihar/ayurvihar and could be having limited access to other need based scholarships & loans.


Merit Based Scholarships


The academic merit based scholarship is open to all somaiya students who have worked hard to maintain good grades in all previous academics. Merit based scholarships awards students based on academic achievement. This scholarship will consider not only academic achievements but will also consider students financial need.
