Educational Financial Assistance Program
The Educational Financial Assistance program was created in 1996 from a generous donation by Dr. Rasik Nagda of Ocala, FL. The purpose of this program is to give interest free loans (up to $2000.00 per person) to students of Indian origin, who have difficulty in completing their education without financial help but are in good academic standing. Financial aid is also given in an emergency situation where not only the education, but also the very sustenance of the student is at risk. This, for e.g. includes situations wherein the student needs funds to pay for apartment rent, food or medical care. To date, about 40 students have been helped under this program.
The ICEC Educational Loan Committee approves all loans, awards, scholarships and other financial assistance. The committee is comprised of the following members: Shio Agarwal, Salil Gokhale, Pramod Khargonekar, Rasik Nagda, Vasudha Narayanan, Bhavani Sankar (Chair) and Ramakant Srivastava, Eligible students may apply for a loan at any time.
