BITSAA Impact:

Deeksha Dadhich

I am writing this to thank you for granting me BITSAA scholarship. The scholarship is very important to me and I am appreciative of your consideration. I am enrolled in BE (Hons.) Electronics and Instrumentation in BITS Pilani, Pilani Campus and wish to study Optoelectronics in active components post graduation if circumstances allow. The scholarship has encouraged me to strengthen these plans. Currently, I am paying my tuition fee mostly through a bank loan. Your support has allowed me a relaxation in the strain caused by increasing fee. I shall strive to make this donation count

I am a student of B.E. (Hons.) Mechanical Engineering (2nd year). I was a member of the Mechanical Association executive team as well as am a member of the Dance Club. I am grateful to the generous founder of the Rakesh Chandra scholarship and I appreciate his thoughtfulness in making it easier for students who aspire higher goals in life and to encourage them to work even harder to fulfill their dreams by supporting them financially. I belong to a middle class family and it was difficult for me to continue studying in BITS. This scholarship has helped me in times of my need and I take this opportunity to express my thanks to you.

I am currently the Treasurer of MEA and was previously a Mechatronics team member. I also works for Team Robocon BITS Pilani which participates in an Asia Oceania level robotics event ABU Robocon.I was very happy to know that I am a recipient of this scholarship. I am very grateful to the donor for his generous scholarship fund. To me the most impressive aspect is the kindness of the donor. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me. 
 Sagar Arora:
I am very thankful to all those who have made this Scholarship of Rs. 25000/- possible. Such things instil confidence in you and motivate you to move ahead in life. I come from a small middle-class family, but my economic background never created a hurdle in my life, thanks to the MCN scholarships of BITS. It greatly motivates me to work harder & give back to this esteemed institution, BITS, Pilani.
