Through this Memorandum of Understanding, a corpus fund of Rs 5 Crores was created. This fund was named ‘The Infosys Foundation Endowment Fund’. Through this fund, 50 students are aimed to benefit annually. Several scholarships, fellowships and travel awards, namely, Infosys Foundation scholarships, Infosys Foundation Fellowships, and Infosys Foundation Travel Awards were created out of this fund.

 

The Infosys Foundation scholarships will be awarded to BS-MS students, Infosys Foundation Fellowships to integrated PhD students and Infosys Foundation Travel Awards to PhD students who have shown excellent potential in their research work. Securing a scholarship from Infosys Foundation is a great option for students belonging to economically weaker backgrounds and can help them pursue their higher studies with ease.
