Alumni Scholarship / Alumni Day Celebrations


To Support Economically Weak Students


  • Around 40% of students admitted to the B.E / B.Tech programmes in Thiagarajar College of Engineering are from rural background. They are in need of financial support to pay their college fees.
  • Thiagarajar College of Engineering Alumni Charitable Trust provides financial support to such deserving students based on a merit cum means basis.
  • The donations received from the alumni during their visits and the reunions are deposited in the TCE Alumni Charitable Trust account and the interest earned from it is used for annual student scholarships.
  • Donations received in India are exempted under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act.
