As a way to recognise, encourage and celebrate the exceptional performance of students several alumni of IIT Delhi, corporates and few philanthropist have instituted various student annual awards. These awards are presented to students for their academic or other notable achievements across various departments, schools and centres.
Most student awards are presented during the annual convocation held in November and consist of a cheque and a certificate. For some awards, like those for best PhD thesis, the awardee presents their work in a public lecture.
Donor(s) will be able to choose an appropriate name for the award which will then be referred to as the “xxx student Award”.
An endowment of Rs 20X can support an annual award of Rs X for perpetuity. The minimum amount for an award is Rs 25,000.
