Professor Valentine Joseph Memorial Scholarship Fund

We at CUFSAA took the true spirit of Professor Joseph when designing this scholarship. It is a premium scholarship aimed at paying around Rs. 10,000 towards a student taking both academic achievement and economic needs into consideration. We need to raise at least US$10,000 towards an endowment to achieve this. We are glad to say that within just a few hours raised quite an impressive portion of the targeted endowment (Around US$ 3000) from the appreciative alumni present at the Tamasha. We are still, quite a distance away from our ambitious target, and we need your help now to reach it!
