Our Alumini

Hendre Aishwarya (2014-2015)

My name is Aishwarya Hendre, I am a computer engineering graduate student at North Carolina State University. I completed by undergraduate from MIT, pune a college affiliated with Savitribai Phule Pune University. This same time last year I had an admit in hand, my courses and decision to join NC state was almost finalized, but finances was the only concern pulling me back. My loan was in the process of sanctioning, however I knew for a fact that the loan amount wouldn’t be sufficient and I needed some other assistance. It was then that I heard about the prestigious D.K.Bhave scholarship. When I applied I hadn’t thought I would get it, but I did. And I am indebted for life to the founders of this scholarship program and all other who made sure it happened for whatever success and education that I am receiving today. The selection process for this scholarship program is completely fair and purely based on merit and I can proudly say that I am one of those deserving people who received the D.K.Bhave scholarship. The scholarship helped me kick start my education journey here in USA smoothly and released pressure off me so that I could concentrate well on my studies.

Jadhav Sumeet (2014-2015)

I am Sumeet Jadhav, pursuing masters in fire protection engineering at University of Maryland, College Park.

Previously, I have completed my bachelors in mechanical engineering from College of Engineering, Pune (COEP). Last year I had applied for the D.K. Bhave scholarship granted by Savitribai Phule Pune University which helps students with their financial needs who desire to pursue masters outside India and I was one of the recipient of the scholarship. It helped me in contributing 5 lakh rupees towards my university tuition fees. The big difference this scholarship made was, I didn’t need to take a loan from bank because this scholarship covered a big chunk of my initial expenses.

Further, the scholarship is granted in two parts, 2.5 lakh rupees for first two semesters which helps you to minimize your tuition expenses for a whole year. So you are not burdened with any kind of loan or high expense for a year or so. I would really like to recommend students to apply for this scholarship and get the benefit from it.

Gadre Shantanu Avinash (2013-2014)

Currently pursuing Masters in Industrial & Systems Engineering at Rochester Institute of technology.

DKB scholarship has helped me to keep myself focused on the studies. Instead of getting into an on campus job in first semester itself, I concentrated more on my course work due to the financial stability provided by DKB Scholarship. It helped me achieving good grades.

I am awarded with a scholarship of five lakh rupees.

I can guide the student who will be offered this scholarship next year in terms of course work and general educational structure in USA. Definitely after coming back to India I will like to share my experiences and valuable learning with the university students who aspire to pursue graduate degree abroad.

Wagh Prabhanjan Bhimrao (2011-2012)

I am doing my Master of Science in Civil Engineering with focus on Structural Engineering. Currently, I am working on my research thesis in steel connection design.

I was offered scholarship from University of Cincinnati for graduate study in Civil Engineering. This scholarship covered 75% of my tuition fees. Rest of the fees were covered by DKB scholarship for the first two semesters of my graduate study. Tuition fee is the most significant expense while studying abroad and thanks to DKB scholarship, I didn’t have to worry about it. It helped me to focus on my studies. Apart from offering financial support, it encouraged me to keep working hard towards my career goals.

I received DKB scholarship in two phases. In phase I, I received $3786.00 and in phase II $3814.00. Though the offered amount was Rs. 5 Lakhs, I didn’t receive the full amount of the scholarship.

Currently, DKB scholarship is offered to only few students per year. It would be great if we could increase the number of beneficiaries. As my way of giving back to society, I would definitely make donations to DKB funds in near future. Also, if required, I will always be available to help out the Savitribai Phule Pune University in whatever way I can to the best of my abilities and expertise.
