GEMs is an idea whose time has come, where all members contribute regularly with the intention of building a sizable corpus over a period of time, so that the aims and the goals of the Institute can be achieved. The contribution from GEMs are utilized towards "IIT Madras Student Travel Grant", and many students have benefitted through this.
Our students attend international conferences, workshops, summits, competitions, etc. in ever-increasing numbers. You can help fund out 'Travel Grant Program' which covers expenses that other sources cannot.
