GAABESU Scholarship Programme - An Overview
It is the vision of the alumni of Bengal Engineering College (now known as Bengal Engineering and Science University) to project BESU as a successful and a leading institution of learning and research. One of the main components towards fulfilling that goal would be to recruit the best minds as students of the University. In order to attract the best candidates to BESU, the educational opportunity at BESU needs to be based purely upon merit and not on one’s financial background.
The alumni scholarship programme was set up in 1998 to help meritorious but needy students. Students with documented financial needs are now being offered the opportunity to apply for scholarships to meet their costs of tuition, books and boarding.
These scholarships have been created by contributions from the alumni globally. The number of scholarships varies yearly depending on the funds available and the number of qualifying applicants. A Scholarship Committee has been formed by GAABESU (Global Alumni Association of Bengal Engineering & Science University) where representatives from all participating Alumni Chapters in India and abroad co-ordinate with BESU faculty & administration. A scholarship management procedure has also been developed by GAABESU to bring about a documented, fair and a transparent selection process.
