IIT Bombay alumnus, Sanjeev Nabar (B.Tech & DIIT, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design, 1974), and currently, the Founder & Managing Director of Ikebana Engineering Ltd. has graciously committed to a Diamond Level Scholarship at the Institute. The ‘Jaywant M. Nabar’ scholarship will pay homage to Mr. Nabar’s father, the late Mr. Jaywant Mangesh Nabar, who would have celebrated his 100th birth anniversary on July 22, 2022. The scholarship will support one meritorious student per year for a total period of 16 years.
Financial scholarships are integral to IIT Bombay’s resolve to build an equitable launchpad for success for financially-constrained students. The Institute is grateful to Mr. Nabar for his generous donation as it aligns with the Institute’s mission of ensuring access and inclusion at every level.
