BITOSA (ENDOWMENT FUND)

SBI account no: 34418796200
IFSC – SBIN 0030527

Any one willing to contribute and help present students is requested to deposit any amount and send details for our records.

An appeal from Ajay Pandey, to old students prompted us to form an endowment fund, in which I will be depositing Rs. 50000/-
This fund will be managed by team of Students, Dean Student Welfare,BITOSA officials as well as Chapter heads. There is a suggestion to involve batch ambassadors too.

The target fund is Rs. 6 crore and it is to be deposited in a fixed deposit when we collect a respectable amount. The interest obtained from it will be used to help students in whatever way the committee finds suitable.
For example we do have two requests for financial help to students who are unable to continue studies due to family problems.

Ajay’s mail..
“This is for we all, including prominently: the BITans, our Alumni, our Young boys and girls, who are studying in our great institution BIT Mesra:-

A few “Endowment” statistics– Yale University- $ 23.9; Stanford- $ 21.4; MIT- $ 12.4 billion, Columbia University- $ 8.2 billion, Cornell University -$ 5.7 billion and so on.

Please look at the figures closely; very, very closely. They are in billion and that too in US dollars.
The majority of the contribution comes from Alumni, who not only pledge huge sums to their Alma Mater, but many a times, they contribute in several other ways. They employ bright students in their companies, recommend them to their friends and fund them in the hour of need. This results into a supreme confidence among the students. The confidence leads to innovation. And above all, a bonding!

Appeal to BITans to read this passionate mail from the captain, team Srijan which moves me for my personal little contribution to their effort…

Team Srijan – Why Formula Student !
RP Shahi <rpshahi@gmail.com>

Dear Sir,

(In reference to your mail to Anamika, dated 16th Oct, 2014)

I am a fourth year mechanical engineering student and the captain of the team. I have been associated with the team for the past 3 years. In this mail, I have tried to explain about Formula Student from grassroot level, what it is all about and why we do it. Hope this reply satisfies all your queries.

Formula Student is all about how a team evolve, its not a one or two year project, its a project of a decade. Its about learning from your mistakes and your rivals, passing on the knowledge to your juniors, let them learn more and continue the process. There are teams in US like Cornell Racing, Germany like Stuttgart and Australia like Monash who have been participating in these sorts of events for more than 15 years. These teams are recruiting hub for Automobile giants like Formula 1 teams, Porsche, Audi, BMW etc. We keep these teams as our role model and aim to surpass them. As said it is an evolution process and will not happen in an year or two but someday we dream to see our team on International chart.

I agree to your statement we work under a fixed dimensions of rule still it provides us enough freedom to combine several disciplines of engineering into a single unit. Formula Student has enough scope of innovation with a team from Australia building their own engine while some European team manufacturing their own Engine Control Unit. We also plan to take part in innovation but once we reach to that level of evolution. It usually takes a formula team 3-4 projects to have a properly manufactured running car competent enough to finish the whole event. I am not trying to hide our failures behind a set of facts, all I am trying to say its not easy to build a car from scratch that can complete an endurance race of 22 kms. If we plan a set of 50 innovations, only 4-5 can be implemented in a year, so comparing the first and second year car won’t show you the difference but comparing the first and fifth will show you how the team has evolved.
