Long Term Specific Aims
The long-term specific aims are as follows:
1. Student Exchange Program
Inter-University Exchange (e.g., an AMU college student studies for a year in a different University like Delhi). This program can be extended to study abroad program.
2. Mentorship/Establish an Adopt-A-Student Program
Adopt a Student programs would create a special bond between the beneficiary and the donor. It would be best if the donor adopts a student from his ancestral hometown or college or University. For the effectiveness of the program the donor should maintain regular contact with the adopted student and take an interest in his studies and progress. Whenever the donor is in India he could visit the college where the student is studying and also meet his teachers.
Such an approach would enable us to spot talent early and to widen the awareness about our goals and programs. It will inspire other students in the school or college when they see the program in action first hand. A data base of mentors will be created for students to access for advice and guidance.
