The Global 30 under 30 Awards are presented once every three years. These awards are the highest recognition by the BITS Pilani community to thirty students or alums for their extraordinary achievements before the age of 30. All students from Dubai, Goa, Pilani and Distance Learning Programs are eligible to participate. Winners are nominated by anyone within the BITS community including students, alumni and faculty. 2009 is the 2nd time that the awards are being presented.
BITSAA received over 100 applications this year across the campuses. The applications were then evaluated by an elite panel of six highly accomplished members of the BITSAA community.
The award is dedicated to all those young BITSians who thought and acted differently, who challenged the status quo, rewrote the rules, and created their own paths. To the leaders, innovators, researchers, academics, students, entertainers, winners, engineers, scientists and concerned Samaritans who studied within the BITS academic environment around the world. These are the people who set the best examples of what it means to be a BITSian!
Below are the candidates who made it to the highest level. For more information on the winners visit www.bitsaa.org.
