अन्नदानं महादानं विद्यादानमतः परम् ।
अन्नेन क्षणिका तृप्तिः यावज्जीवञ्च विद्यया ॥

The gift of food is a great deed, but the gift of vidyā is paramount.
The satisfaction gained from food is momentary, but that from vidyā lasts a lifetime".

Thus, ensuring that the dream of studying at one of the most prestigious institutions of India shall not be hindered by financial constraints and alleviating students from any concerns barring the pursuit of knowledge.
