The IIT (BHU) Foundation Scholarship is made possible through the IIT (BHU) Access Fund. The Access Fund was established in 2021 with a seed funding of $2 Million from IIT(BHU) alum Mr. Nikesh Arora and the Palo Alto Network Foundation. The seed donation enabled the creation of a dedicated fund to provide a variety of support services for the current student body at IIT (BHU) and supporting its mission to be a transformative force in technical education in India.
The very first scholarship under the Access Fund is a means-based scholarship providing full ride, four years of tuition and medical insurance coverage for qualified applicants. The scholarship also aims to increase participation of women in engineering. Your donations to the IIT (BHU) Access Fund are key in expanding the number of scholarships available to students. Please consider making a contribution of $1,000 for each of the next four years to support the education of a deserving student. It is a four years commitment but it has the potential to change the course of an otherwise deserving student. Your contributions may even be tax deductible.
