We are happy to share the recent success story of Arvind Pawan (2005B5A3404), who approached BITS alumni to see if we could help him. BITSAA Silicon Valley Chapter, then came up with this brilliant idea to turn Arvind's dream (presenting his paper on nanotechnology at IEEE 9th Conference) to reality. What started as a one-time initiative has now become a full-fledged Travel Scholarship under the BITSAA Miles Program that can be provided to students for attending many reputed conferences and events across the world.
The story was covered in The Hindu (Read Here) by Divya Nawale (batch 2003).
