About the Donor

The Bursary is made possible by a gift from Mr Ajit Aravind Prabhu. Prabhu came from humble beginnings and education was the golden ticket to his success. After completing his general education at a Government school in India, he pursued a Master’s Degree at Old Dominion University and at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the US. His strong belief that a quality education should be afforded to any student that has a passion for learning is the basis of the Bursary.
