Across the world, donations from the public have made a huge impact on the academic world by funding cutting-edge research, institutional infrastructure and life-changing fellowships for students. Indeed, the top universities in the world receive a substantial part of their funding through philanthropy, and would probably not have reached their status of eminence without these generous contributions. IISER Thiruvananthapuram is a young institution with immense potential - a young faculty and some of the brightest students in the country together striving to make a mark in the academic world. If you would like to donate and making a positive impact in our endeavour, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Every gift counts!
