MVJ College of Engineering, since its establishment in 1982, has been carrying forward the legacy of Dr M V Jayaraman by guiding thousands of students in shaping their future and becoming individuals of merit and knowledge.

Dr. M V Jayaraman Foundation

Dr. M V Jayaraman was a teacher, a scholar, a musician, but above all, a visionary. His mission was to offer quality education in a wide range of disciplines. His first step into the field of education – the Venkatesha Education Society – has undergone a metamorphosis from starting a Teacher Training College to a highly eminent organization administering 11 institutions under its auspices.

In its endeavor to impart knowledge to the deserving and meritorious students, MVJ College of Engineering in remembrance of its founder and desire to take forward his legacy to make education available to all classes of society, has instituted scholarships for academic excellence through Dr. M V Jayaraman Foundation for its Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs.

Each year the foundation provides a large number of scholarships across all its disciplines. The foundation has announced 45 scholarships for the year 2016.

Seeds of great discoveries are constantly floating around us, but they only take root in minds well prepared to receive them.
