JM Memorial Scholarship & You
This is a top down approach to impact the higher education in India indirectly and directly. India and Odisha in particular is in higher needs than ever for good quality academicians in the higher education institutions.
Odisha boasts of an IIT, IIM, NIT, Institute of Mathematics, multiple central universities to name a few(Source: Wikipedia)
The quality of education lacks research mindset in general. Our approach is intended to bridge this gap by opening a channel to share and prosper. This initiative will bring the bright and dedicated students from these universities who will directly or indirectly contribute to enhance the education environment back home. It will take some time to create the initial pool of academicians. However, once the the model gets the initial pool, it will bring in many more on its own.
We intend to seek guidance and support from the academicians who have been trained in USA, UK or Europe. We have some of them as advisors in this charitable organization. We are in touch with various Universities and look forward to participation from the professors and our local group members.
