Subrata Sarkar awarded the Subir Raha Memorial Scholarship third year in a row
1/1/2013

The Computer Science student of Jadavpur University, now in his third year, continues to excel at his studies.

The Subir Raha Memorial Scholarship was instituted in February 2011 at his alma mater, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, to sponsor the annual education and boarding expenses of a meritorious student in need of financial assistance. Co-sponsored by Team Raha Ideation (trIdea) Private Limited, the consulting firm founded by Subir Raha following his retirement as Chairman and Managing Director of the ONGC Group of Companies, and Areva T&D (India) Limited, where he served as Advisor to the Board of Directors, the Scholarship comprises a purse of Rs. 20,000 and a Certificate to be disbursed annually.

Subrata was awarded the Scholarship for the first time in 2011, the year it was instituted, when he joined the University as a freshman in the Computer Science faculty. He was one of only 11 students - out of 384 given financial aid that year, to receive the maximum grant of Rs. 20,000 spread across four semesters. His consistently excellent performance in his course has earned him the Scholarship for academic years 2012 and 2013 as well. It is an outstanding achievement, considering that the University received a whopping 1125 requests for sponsorships this year, up from about half that number in 2011.
