Each award winner received cash prize (Rs. 3,000/Rs. 5,000/Rs. 8,000), a certificate and a plaque/memento.

b) A video about the dramatic effect on a student’s life after receiving alumni funded tuition scholarship is posted on YouTube:


Karan Bajaj (final yr Computer Science and Engineering) worked with a team of 4 juniors, coming up with a Video Documentary on Naresh C. Jain scholarship for which he had assisted Shri NC Jain last year.

Karan wishes to establish a bidirectional communication platform so that important issues among the Student community reach the Alumni community effectively. This clip is a little first step.

The students have used best Digital Cameras available with them, and were a little nervous during the shoot, but we ended up completing the compilation in 20 days.
