Mavjibhai L. Patel (BSE CE ’63) of Flushing, New York, has made a $50,000 endowment gift to establish the Lilavati and Taraben and Mavjibhai Patel Scholarship Fund to provide need-based scholarship support to full-time, civil engineering undergraduates. The donor’s preference is that students from India will receive funds in the financial packages they are otherwise awarded.

Mr. Patel also started another $50,000 scholarship back in 2012 to honor his parents. He established the Deviben and Lalbhai Patel Endowed Scholarship Fund that provides need-based scholarship support to full-time undergraduate students at the College of Engineering.

Mr. Patel says that the University of Michigan is where he got the best education and training that helped him, as a first generation Indian American, succeed. He says, “Michigan has given me my identity. Hail to Michigan!”
