Prabha Veerubhotla: 
I, Veerubhotla V.V.L Prabha, a student of BITS, Pilani – Hyderabad campus will be greatly benefited by the Ashok Agarwal Scholarship. I completed by Class XII from Vijayawada after which I secured an admission in BITS. Considering my family’s financial constraints, I was looking for a financial aid to meet my academic expenses here when this scholarship happened. Thanks to Dr. Ashok Agarwal, I will be able to pay my tuition fee comfortably for the following semester & take another step towards what I hope will be a successful career. I greatly appreciate this kind of help for the genuinely needy students by the alumni of BITS. Once again, I express my heartfelt gratitude for the scholarship & the gesture.

Pennam Sanjay:
I am Pennam Sanjay, a third student doing B.E.(Hons.) Electrical and Electronics Engineering in BITS Pilani Hyderabad Campus. I received Ashok Agarwal Scholarship in the 1st year second semester. I am very happy to receive this scholarship of amount Rs.40,000/- which is more than what i get through  Merit Cum Need Scholarship(Rs.20,000/-). The amount is really helpful for middle income group students like me in education. I am able to reduce the burden on my parents through this scholarship. It is also very encouraging and motivating for students like us to receive the scholarship. I sincerely thank the alumni and management for awarding me this prestigious scholarship. I really wish the alumni to continue giving this scholarship to help the needy.

 I am Mohammad Ghouse Mohiddin Khan, a third yearite, doing Electrical and Electronics Engineering at BITS-PILANI, Hyderabad Campus. I was selected for Ashok Agarwal scholarship when I was in my first year. Then I didn't know that it was worth 40,000/-. But now I am very happy because with merit cum need scholarship you get only 50% of the tuition fee back whereas here it is the complete tuition fee. This is very encouraging and motivating deed on the part of the management and alumni as it is very beneficial to middle income group students like me. My parents are very happy as the scholarship has come at the time when there is a hike in tuition fee. I sincerely thank the management and alumni for instituting this scholarship and believe that they continue helping the needy.
