Comments about objective of the trust:

>>Objective: Empowering Education
>>Initially for 1-2 Years with in ...

>>Future Plans:
>>1.Aiding Aged People

I strongly feel, we should have an objective/mission statement which sounds like

Create a stable & useful scholarship program in MIT for economically backward people in the next five years

We should talk about expanding the scope in the final year only. This will give us focus and clarity!!

At 1:29 AM, Blogger MIT NOBLE CAUSE said...

Comments to Deebaboo

As per ur suggession we have to include our contribution as Scholarship,

We put forth this Q with Our Dean while discussing abt our Noble Cause.

When we give it as a Scholarship, Selected Student can not avail another scholarship.... Thats is the only problem we have.

If we give it as a Reward, It wil not be a problem for that selected student to avail another Scholarship.

Then this Scholarship or Reward willbe given through out his Batchelor degree(4 Years).

After Discussing abt this with our Dean and Elite MIT commitee we will decide whether we are goinig to give Reward or Scholarship.

At 3:01 AM, Blogger DeeBaaBoo said...

Thanks for that..BTW is that Kapil answering?

The main thing I am trying to push is Have a clear mission statement, it can be a reward or scholarship. Also we could avoid talking about the bigger scope to begin with.

Am I clear..or are we on different lines?

When we are talking about
sponsoring 2-8 people at MIT...

talking about primary education..old age..etc etc is like having too many things on the plate..

Our biggest task now is to sustain the commitment for a considerable amount of time, say 4 years. So let us postpone even "talking about the scope expansion" idea for another four years..

Reply to Dinesh Comment

1. As u said, Scholarchip or Reward will get finalised once the discusion with our Dean is over.

2.Regarding our objective;
as u said, we will not highlight other than Education Empowring atleast for first 2 years.

Depends on fund flow other activities will be taken care in deligence with commiteeapproval

To me it still appears to be driven more by emotions than by practical considerations! I wish I am proved wrong. The point with which I am still not convinced is that we want people to commit funds without giving an estimate from our side as to what will be required to support a person for the duration of his studies. Again the number of beneficiaries are being specified very loosely (2-3 people etc..). We need to remember that once we commit to provide assistance to a person it is unfair to be not able to sustain that.


At 12:36 AM, Blogger MIT NOBLE CAUSE said...

Last week end we have met some MIT guys personally and talked about the Colleage.

Following point we have Received:-

1. Tution Fee for Per person per Year is --- 14k

2. Examination Fee -2k

3. Hostel Fee -- 8K.

From Last semester onwards Our 32nd Batch Seniors Providing Assistence to Economically Backward Students.

Their Assistence:-
They are asking Students to apply for their Cause.

From that application MIT Professors(Few of them) Short listing one person per department through Interview(One to one).

So totally 8 guys has been selected as per person from a department.

For that Selected guys our 32nd batch seniors providing 4K Mess Fee assistance per person.

Here they haven't committed that they will give for another Year.

Based on the flow of money they are dividing it to 8 and giving that as Contribution.

Based on these facts and some of our friends cautious approach we have suggessed to go for the following:-

1. we can provide tution fee to Two Students -------> Totally 28K Per year.

2. For first two years our Commitment to be Two persons per Year. That is also for First year guys only.

So totally our outflow could be 28K for every Year.

We will keep Remaining amount as FD(with some calculation).

After two years we will see the Response and Contribution Strength based on that we will decide Expansion.

I think this is very very safe and Cautious Approach.

I think this suggession will allow everyone to be part of it.

let start with small step.

If any of u has different opinions please post it.

Dear Kapil,

1. First it is most user unfriendly to go to the comments & read everybody's comment. The date stamp also is not displayed. We can make this a collaborative blog, by changing the options.Then everybody can post in the blog.

2. What you have suggested is very valid. My suggestion is that we should not mention to the outside world ( esp Dean ) that we might expand to include outside MIT students , Elderly etc.

3. We should not say that this is initiative will be for 2 yrs, then we might increase the beneficiaries etc., Nothing of this sort should be discussed with anybody else outside goldenbatch.

4. Our motto has to be "Under Promise & Over Deliver" & not the vice versa.

5. Before the meeting on 28th , we need to send a very clear PPT stating what we expect from our classmates. PPT sd not be more than 3 slides - not more than 7 lines per slide.
