2017 Student Exchange Program Fund Raising Appeal

Dear Friends,
We are excited that following the recent visit by Dr. M.K. Mishra, Vice Chancellor BIT Mesra to various U.S. universities, BIT Mesra is in the process of establishing student/faculty exchange programs with Columbia University, New Jersey Institute Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, Illinois Instituter of Technology, UC Berkley, Stanford University and Santa Clara University. BIT Mesra will be sending 20 - 25 students/faculty members to these universities during the summer of 2017 as part of the summer research program. Birla Institute of Technology Mesra Alumni Association – North America (BITMAA-NA), Birla Institute of Technology Old Students Association – Silicon Valley (BITOSA- SV) and BITOSA Mumbai have made an initial commitment of $ 44,000.00 to support the 2017 BIT Mesra student summer research program. We hope that this first step of the student research exchange program will lead to future faculty exchange and joint research programs to help BIT Mesra become one of the top technical institute in India.   
To sustain this program on an ongoing basis we are launching a fund raising campaign to raise $150,000.00 by year end 2017.  We hope you are equally excited about this program.  Your financial support is the key to the success this program. Through your donation we will be giving back to our alma mater which has helped us to be what we are today.
