St. Francis College for Women, started in 1959, is a Catholic minority Institution founded by the Sisters of Charity for the holistic education for empowerment of women.
The college offers fee concessions to students from disadvantaged groups. The college has announced scholarships for deserving students from the deserving students’ fund. This fund has been built up by the generosity of the staff, alumnae and well-wishers. The scholarships offered are called LUCINI scholarships. Contributions to this fund are welcome, except at the time of admissions.
St. Francis College For Women has a highly active placement cell, which aims to provide an effective and mutually beneficial platform for job seekers and job providers. Organized and run on a professional basis, the placement cell may be considered comparable to foreign university placement cells in terms of the extent and nature of linkages, as well as training of prospective professionals.
The placement cell comprises staff representatives from different departments, student representatives from the second and final years of graduation, voluntary ex-student representatives and supporting administrative staff.
