Birla Carbon is pleased to announce that it has pledged $250,000 to support research opportunities for students attending Kennesaw State University’s (KSU) College of Science and Mathematics, located in Kennesaw, Georgia (USA). Termed ‘The Birla Carbon Scholar’s Program’, this initiative, through a commitment of $50,000 per annum for five years, will create summer research opportunities for 10 undergraduate students each year.
In recognition of the scholar program, KSU’s largest Science and Mathematics classroom is being named as the Birla Carbon Auditorium for the term of the association. This is the first of its kind initiative for Kennesaw State University and for Birla Carbon. On April 30, 2014, Senior Leaders from Birla Carbon and the Dean of Science and Mathematics College met for an official signing event at KSU’s campus. This event was attended by students and faculty from KSU, and our lab managers from Marietta.
