The Foundation is supported by Mr. N.R. Narayana Murthy, an IITK alumnus. The Research-I Foundation grant is utilized to enhance the overall research output and research environment of the CSE department. During the 2021-2022 financial year, this fund is utilized in the following ways -
Excellence Fund has been created in each academic department and Inter-Disciplinary Programs (IDPs) to provide more non-governmental financial support from alumni and well-wishers. The funds are raised by the respective departments and a matching grant on such donations is given from IITK (General Corpus) for the utilization to each department and IDPs to conduct various activities and to encourage fund raising programs
This Fund is used for the payment of registration fee of nine faculty members and six PhD students toward participation in the REACH symposium. Among the nine faculty members, four were scheduled to speak at the symposium. They are Prof. Sandeep Shukla, Prof. Piyush Rai, Prof. Swaprava Nath, and Prof. Pramod Subramanyan. Another five faculty members were scheduled to attend the symposium. They are Prof. Debadatta Mishra, Prof. Preeti Malakar, Prof. Ashutosh Modi, Prof. Hamim Zafar, and Prof. Swarnendu Biswas. REACH symposium is an interdisciplinary summit among multiple departments of IIT Kanpur to encourage faculty members and PhD students to take up interdisciplinary research. It was planned to be held from 29-31 March 2020 in Lucknow. The REACH symposium could not be held due to Coronavirus pandemic.
Considering increasing expenses on academic activities in different departments and less support from the government, IITK created Departmental Excellence Fund in each academic department and Inter-Disciplinary Program. These funds are utilized for various academic activities including support to faculty and students attending national/international conferences, organizing seminars, etc. NRNM Endowment was created by Dr. Narayana Murthy and the endowment is utilized by different departments and Inter-Disciplinary Programs for their various activities.
