KALIPATNAPU FOUNDATION DONATES RS ONE CRORE FOR SCHOLARSHIPS IN BHU

VARANASI : Banaras Hindu University has signed a memorandum of understanding with “Kalipatnapu Foundation” to institute forty scholarships for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Chemistry in the Institute of Science. The Foundation will donate a sum of Rs One Crore for the purpose to the university to institute these scholarships in honour of late Shri Kalipatnapu Kondiah, a former student and teacher of BHU. Shri Kondiah obtained his BSc and MSc at BHU, and then became a faculty member in Chemistry in the University (1922-1941) and rose to be Head of the Chemistry Department. He left the university in 1941 to join the Freedom Movement and remained in jail for 5 years. Upon release from jail, he set up a chemical factory in Andhra Pradesh to help the country become self-reliant.

BHU Registrar Prof Arun Singh and Shri Indushekhar Rao signed the MOU in the presence of Vice Chancellor Prof Sudhir Jain, and other family members of Kalipanapu family including wife of Shri Indushekhar Rao, Sri Chaitanya Kalipatnapu and his niece. Shri Chaitanya mentioned that the best way for a student to show gratitude to his university for providing a good education is through “Pay Forward,” that is, pay for the future generation of students. He mentioned that through this donation, the family wishes to acknowledge the impact BHU education made to the life of his grandfather and therefore to the generations.

Vice Chancellor Prof Sudhir Jain lauded the Foundation and the family for the generous contribution aimed at supporting students in their pursuit of knowledge. He said that such donations enable BHU to serve its purpose more vigorously by providing good education to deserving students from financially-deprived families.
