I am a student at one of India’s prestigious food technology institutes- the National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management (NIFTEM). Here I am pursuing my Bachelor of Technology in Food Technology and Management. I have been selected for my Masters at one of the Grand Ecoles (elite graduate schools) in France which is Oniris, Nantes. The dream to pursue an international Masters of science in engineering looks lively with this selection. This Masters program will allow me to experience an international exposure while staying in France for a duration of one year since I am directly admitted to the second year of Masters. During this program, I will be experiencing a wider perspective of the entire world. This program –international Masters of Science in Process and Bioprocess Engineering (Project Management for Food Factories of the Future) is a unique program which objective is to train future leaders capable of managing complex engineering projects in the domains of Food Processing and Preservation while keeping in mind about the environment and energy efficiency within an international context. Such programs are a need of the hour to end global hunger while caring about the climate and the environment. I am privilege to be accepted to such a unique program. The total cost of the two years program is 24000 Euros (equivalent of 20,00,000 INR). Due to my admission directly into the second year and additionally being granted a scholarship the total cost of the program is reduced to 6500 Euros (equivalent of 5,60,000 INR). Moreover, the living expenses and accommodation for the entire one-year duration account for approximately 7000 Euros (equivalent of 6,00,000 INR). Therefore, my total expense is 6500 + 7000 = 13500 Euros (equivalent of 11,60,000 INR) in order to participate in this program. Out of this, I have arranged 1850 Euros (the equivalent of 1,60,000 INR). So, I am in need of approximately11,650 Euros (the equivalent of 10,00,000 INR). This program will be beneficial for me as well as for my country since I can apply my learnings to bring a positive change in my own country. I would be extremely grateful for any support that I get in making this dream a reality.
I am also willing to include the names of anyone who contribute minimum of 70 Euros (6,000 INR) in my Master's thesis.
My hope is that you will see the value of this program and that it opens your heart to help me. I would like to thank you in advance for anything you can do in support of this effort.
