Goal Amount

Brief Overview:

IIT Kanpur welcomes the brightest minds and boldest thinkers of tomorrow. We believe that no cost should prevent a student from joining IIT Kanpur and it is our responsibility to ensure that the expenses fit your family's unique circumstances. We are grateful to our alumni Mr Praveen Kumar Srivastava (BT/CE/2005) for his support and efforts towards establishing "सहयोग" – A Financial Aid Initiative". We are pleased to share that this initiative will surely make the initial onboarding journey of a new student seamless till they settle down in the campus and begin their life changing path towards excellence in academics at IIT Kanpur. The financial assistance rendered to the new students through this aid will help them to amp up their dream at IIT Kanpur.

Our endeavor is to support 100 students every year, and with your support we aspire to raise Rs. 2.50 crores through this initiative. Accordingly, 10 batches of students will be benefitted and a total of 1000 students supported.
