About the cause
The Centre For Innovation, IIT-Madras is a student-led innovation lab that facilitates creativity and technology. We house teams that represent IIT-M in competitions across the globe forvarious national and international events, namely:
Currently, the students pay travel costs out of their own pocket, a situation that demands immediate rectification considering the sleepless months of dedication and hard work investedby each student into the project.
We request alumni to donate generously for supporting the travel and accommodation expenses of the CFI student teams
How the money will be used
To present at these prestigious competitions, the teams need to travel across the nation and abroad. During the summer of 2018, each team member will be incurring an approximate minimum flight expenditure of Rs.50,000. Considering the number of students per team, we require a basic minimum sponsorship of Rs.30,00,000 total for international travel.
For domestic travel, each student generally pays around Rs. 8,000 total. For domestic travel across the nation, we need a basic minimum sponsorship of Rs. 2,00,000 .
