For project 1066 (Providing scholarship for Graduate study in India)


  The Dhanpatmal Virmani Education Trust & Management Society, Roop Nagar, Delhi-110007 as an established non-profit organization with a significant past record in creating opportunities in education started the R. N. Virmani Memorial Endowment in the year 2002-03, to award scholarships to Indian Nationals for graduate studies in all fields, irrespective of caste, creed or community. The objective is to encourage and help meritorious and needy students from low income families to pursue higher studies in College/University in India.

School and who come from a family having an income of less than Rs 1,00,000/- annually, and are amongst the top five in the 12th Sr. Sec.

Preference is given to students getting into Professional/Technical College that is, Medical, Engineering/Technology and Management.

The Scholarship scheme is very successfully implemented with the formation of a permanent corpus. The original donation of $15,000 was made by Dr. Renu Virmani Finn, daughter of Mr. R. N. Virmani, members of her family and friends. We have received a total of Rs. 49 lakhs so far as contribution up to 10-06-2011 which have been Invested in Govt. of India bonds and Banks.
