Throughout the academic year, we come across students who face unexpected distress like accidents, loss of supporting family members etc., which in turn can lead to sudden financial difficulties.
We believe no one who has struggled for so long and so hard to get into IITM should forfeit this chance merely due to a lack of financial support.
This appeal is to request funding support for distressed students, so they can recover and complete their education.
We seek your support for the distress fund.
NOTE: All donations to IIT Madras are 100% tax exempted under 80G.
Story of benefited students:
Shri Amit Kumar Singh has faced difficulty, as his scholarship ended due to some regulations, resulting in lack of funds for his education. This issue was solved by the funds that our alumni have offered. It served a great purpose.
Raghwendra Sarkar couldn't continue his education due to the sudden demise of his father, the only earning member of the family. The Student distress fund helped him, complete his degree here in IITM.
A few student beneficiary feedbacks:
“I was supported by the institute’s alumni network. This general gesture of the alumni motivates me to work harder to get successful in my career, so I can return the favor to our institute and society.”
- Nitish Kumar Singh, Student of IITM
"I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to you for making this scholarship possible. I promise you that I will work very hard and eventually give something back to others."
- Era Modi, Student of IITM
"I feel blessed to get this helping hand from the alumni of our Institute. This scholarship from the "Shoma and Prasad Setty Student Distress fund" stands as an example of the culture that this campus has implanted in the minds of its students. I take this as an inspiration to look forward to contribute later to such initiatives and experience the joy of giving back."
