IIT Delhi Scholarship Fund – Free BTech Degree to UG Students

New Delhi, 3 February 2022 – IIT Delhi will be offering free BTech degrees to students every year, as the institute has received INR 10 crore as an endowment from an alumnus. The fund has been donated by IIT Delhi alumnus Dr Amit Sinha, a student of the 1998 batch of BTech in Electrical Engineering. He has gifted the institute INR 10 crores (USD 1.34 million) through the Amit & Deepali Sinha Foundation, with the aim to establish a first-of-its-kind, full-ride scholarship for deserving students who make it into the institute.

Alumni contributions are an important resource to enhance an institute’s competitiveness in attracting both students and faculty. IIT Delhi is proud of such alumni who serve as role models for our students. It is a testimony to the high regard they have for their institute and an acknowledgement of the role IIT Delhi has played in their careers. We wish them further success.”
