We list some of the testimonials here to give you a glimpse of the BITSAA Impact.

BITSAA Travel Sponsorship Program offers scholarships to students planning to participate in international conferences and symposiums in the field of engineering and technology.



Balasubramanian M. (2010H124416P)
“Photonics is a niche area of research providing the answers to many problems faced with the electronic technology. There is very little work going on in this area in India and this was an opportunity to attend an international conference guided by pioneers in this field like Prof David Payne. On a personal note, this conference gave me opportunity to assess myself at the global platform and gave me confidence to succeed in a career in research. Also, the discussions and inputs therein have opened up avenues for further strengthening the Photonics research department at BITS-Pilani. All this was made possible because of the encouragement and support given by the BITSian community and in particular by BITSAA by offering me the travel scholarship." 


Merit-cum-need scholarship is one of the several scholarships offered by BITS to students from weaker financial background based on their academic performance and merit. Testimonials show that the students have greatly benefitted from the merit-cum-need (MCN) scholarships, as a part of their financial burden is alleviated and they are able to concentrate better on their academics.

“I am Ashima Dharembra, a first year student pursuing Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering at BITS, Pilani - Pilani campus. I am an active member of NSS, BITS Pilani. I am an avid reader and am a part of the Matrix club. I wish to pursue higher studies in the field of electronics after graduation. I have also been a scholar at school and this scholarship will go a long way in making me strive harder to achieve my goals. I am genuinely grateful for this scholarship as it eases a lot of the financial burden on my family. It feels even more special coming from a BITS alumnus. This scholarship is of great help to me and my family. I thank BITSAA and the donors for this kind gesture. "
