"I am Vennila Saravanan(from TamilNadu), a proud alumni of the Hinduja scholarship. I was awarded with the scholarship between 2002-2008. I have always cherished the relationship with Hinduja foundation and it really has a special place in my heart, that it supported me from my 10th standard till the college. I am currently living in Netherlands, working here as Software Engineer. I would like to be in touch with you and would like to know if there are any such alumni days or something that is happening to be connected with this big family and fellow awardees."

"After my graduation from Kirori Mal College, University of Delhi, I did my masters from IIT Bombay in 2010-2012. Then, I got the opportunity to study at Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris for one year to achieve a Master of Research degree in 2013. Next, I started my Ph.D. in Exploration Geophysics from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia. I am defending my Thesis on coming Tuesday, the 23rd of this month. Also, my Ph.D. research has offered multiple jobs: I am choosing the industrial R&D position at ION, Houston, USA. Let's see how it goes. I really appreciate the Hinduja group for its support to my earlier and the most vital days of student career. Thank you."

"This scholarship means a lot to me. I have lost my father 4 years ago and my family has no source of earning. My study was completely based on a study loan. This scholarship helped me to do the activities related to study like internship, buying a laptop, doing different courses. My study would have been incomplete without this scholarship. Recently I have been placed in L&T and my joining is on 1st July, 2017. At this time, whatever I have achieved in my life, a big credit goes to Hindjua Foundation for this scholarship. Thanks a lot!"
