    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu



I recently graduated from IIT Madras with a Masters in Structural Engineering after completing my bachelors in civil engineering from Punjab Engineering College (PEC). I seek to work at the intersection of artificial intelligence and civil engineering. For my master's research, I worked on applying machine learning to improve the structural design process.

I am glad to let you know that Autodesk has offered me a wonderful opportunity to attend a two week AI For Engineering summer school ( in Toronto, Canada from 12th August through 23rd August 2019 to encourage the use of AI and machine learning in traditional engineering industries. They have also offered a fellowship of $1500 CAD for the program on a reimbursement basis. Kindly find attached invitation letter.

Since I recently graduated from college and the expected total expenses amount to around $3000 CAD, I am not in a position to pay for the program by myself. Therefore I seek funds to avail this amazing opportunity aligned with my career aspirations and academic background. I would then share back my learnings to the AI and engineering community at large.

I don't want my financial background to be a barrier to my dreams and miss out this wonderful learning experience. I would request you to support me for the cause in whatsoever way possible, be it temporary financial support for two months or a donation.

The expected expenses for the program are as follows :
Registration : $ 500 CAD
Airfare: $ 2,000 CAD
Visa: $ 200 CAD
Miscellaneous: $ 300 CAD(Will try to minimize this as much as possible)
Total: $ 3,000 CAD (~$ 2248 USD ~ Rs. 1,56,436)

I would return the temporary financial support as soon as I get the reimbursement of $ 1500 CAD from AutoDesk (end of August 2019).

For tempory financial support, you can PayPal with or use upi with 9971797184@upi. 

I would be extremely grateful to you if you could help in the endeavor and I shall also give it back to the younger generation once I get financially sound enough.  

Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks and Regards,
Kashish Kumar
