As a group, the Class of 1998 is delighted to contribute to the advancement of education by giving back out to its institute.”

Anil & Reshma Nigam Scholarship

I always hoped that one day I would be able to attend a school as prestigious as IIT Kanpur. Being from a low income family, though, I found that money was always an obstacle. This scholarship has not only helped my family out financially, but it has also given me the chance to follow my passions and make them a reality. I appreciate your helping me and making a difference.
