Why IIIT-A needs your support

 

Sustaining high quality of education and research — with a major impact on the society at large — is pivotal in the growth of an academic institution. Good groundwork support (buildings, equipment, networks, etc,) and high quality human resources (faculty, staff, etc.) are critical to a quality institution. IIIT, Allahabad is a unique institution in its structure. .We have 7000 approx alumni of the intitute in 20 years. This means not just more students, but also research across more domains and hence more impact. This requires a delicate balance between quality and affordability of education which can be achieved largely through philanthropic gestures from multiple sources, of which alumni can play a key role.
