What is a good CGPA for fee waiver?

CGPA is just one thing among the large number of things that are available. CGPA is important for admissions but not the only criteria; there are other important things as well.
1) GRE Score – Yes, GRE score is really important. If you get a high GRE score, you can compensate for a low CGPA.
2) SOP, LOR, PROFILE – GRE score is not the only thing, along with GRE score also build up your profile doing internships or projects or presentations relevant to the course you want to apply. Develop a good SOP & LOR. Also, ensure that your CGPA doesn’t go down further.

Scholarships are not damn easy to get, aren’t they? Can you tell me what are the basic criterion for the same?

Scholarships are offered for a handful of seats but they aren’t exactly very difficult to get as well! What you have to understand is the earlier you apply for the scholarship; the better are your chances of achieving one. This is where the old English adage “early bird gets the worm” hits home. There are a lot of students ready and raring to go when it comes to scholarships, so you have to be wise enough to be ahead of the line in order to bag a scholarship. There are actually no basic criteria. Universities offer scholarship from the grants received (or donors who lend some amount of funding), have their own set of criteria. Other humanitarian organizations like Aga Khan foundation, Nehru Fulbright scholarships, Youth Foundation etc. have their own set of criteria which includes leadership skills, academic profile and other set of extra-curricular activities. The criterion or rather a yardstick to measure your worthiness for the scholarship comprises of your academic achievement or academic profile i.e. GPA, performance in undergraduate course, papers and journals published, internships and other important projects. Apart from the academic profile various co-curricular and extracurricular activities which highlight your leadership and social skills are also taken into account viz. hosting an event, participating in technical or cultural fests, being part of symposiums and seminars, taking part in social organization drives such as CRY and NSS. A good GRE/TOEFL score can also boost your scholarship chances. As you can see there are no hard and fast criteria that you are required to meet. It is observed that a student with modest GRE score bags scholarship while a high scorer suffers, that has to do with the other accomplishments that differentiate between the two aspirants.
