“Our Alma Mater gave us more than an education! She gave us the opportunity to embrace life with a passion and experience some of the best days of our lives. It is only natural that each of us who have gained so much in life would be motivated to give some back to our Alma Mater so that she continues to offer the same for generations to come!” - Jayan Ramankutty, Managing Partner at KRK Ventures, LLC and BITSAA Chairman.

A message from our CEO

Dear BITSians,

We at BITSAA are passionate about connecting BITSians from around the world to each other and also connecting BITSians to   our alma mater, BITS Pilani. In this spirit, we take up several initiatives - some fun like BITSians Day and local chapter meets;   help current students by providing scholarships, awards and travel help; help BITSians give back to BITS to help student and   faculty enrichment; help BITSian families in case of family emergencies; help improve the lives of BITS campus support staff -   just to name a few. Overall, we strive to make a positive difference in BITS ecosystem including lives of BITSians around the   world.

A lot of us want to give back to BITS in some way. BITSAA Annual Fundraising drive is an avenue to do just that. Please donate.   We seek participation of every BITSian. We are asking for any amount that you feel comfortable giving - be it small or be it   generous. Also, please help spread the word around.

Let's join hands and support BITSAA.


Ravi Sekhar Cherukuri
CEO, BITSAA International
