STAYCON is our initiative to nurture a connection between the alumni and the Institute and is specifically targeted to the younger alums of IITD. Alumni who participate in this initiative agree to pay a fixed sum (minimum of Rs. 1000) per year to IITD for as many years as they wish. In investment parlance, this would be a Systematic Giving Plan (SGP) wherein alums keep contributing to your Alma Mater over a minimum period of five years. If you let us know a particular date (your Birthday, Anniversary, etc.) on which you would like to make this annual contribution our office will remind you of that date every year.
Around 400 alums have signed this pledge so far. The contributions will be used for various initiatives for our students like travel grants for conferences, research and teaching support, and other programs. Through this initiative, we also look forward to obtaining guidance and mentorship from our alums and working in close collaboration with them to support the Institute’s Vision.
