IIT Bombay alumnus, Rajendra Gandhi (B.Tech., Metallurgical Engineering and Material Sciences, 1971) has graciously committed to a scholarship endowment for women students at IIT Bombay. The scholarship titled “Bhanu” in memory of Mr. Gandhi’s late mother will support women students who face financial constraints and are often discouraged to pursue their education in the STEM field.
Mr. Gandhi credited his personal and professional growth to the top-quality education he received at IIT Bombay. This motivated him to give back to his alma mater, and support deserving women students at the Institute.
Mr. Gandhi’s generous donation adds to the Institute’s overall mission of providing a world-class education to economically-challenged and meritorious students.
