BITSAA Impact:
 
1) Bhanu Priya S
 I am Bhanu Priya and I am presently pursuing my 2nd year in M.Sc. (Hons) Biological Sciences and B.E.(Hons) in Computer Science at BITS-Pilani, Pilani Campus. I am very passionate about pursuing higher studies in the field of Biosciences, especially Medicine, which will help me contribute something to the society. I am an active member of the Biological Society of BITS-Pilani. My father works in defence. My parents have always supported me in all my endeavors till now but I did not want to depend on them completely in the future. This scholarship has helped reduce the financial load on my family. I am very grateful for this scholarship. I too believe in the education of girls and empowerment of Indian women. The objective of this scholarship has inspired me to do something for this cause in future.
Thank you, Mr. Suraj and BITSAA for this scholarship.
