'The Bharatkumar S. Joshi Scholarship' for 2019 was awarded to Mr. Justin A. Sanchez.

"Receiving the Bharatkumar S. Joshi Scholarship, means gaining the opportunity to develop technology that would enable low-power, real-time medical devices. Devices such as advanced prosthetics and real-time patient monitoring systems have a diverse set of intensive constraints. While specialized solutions would help; they would be too costly for the average consumer. This scholarship has inspired me to insure that not only are these medical devices usable, but available for all, though a single device with the flexibility for each potential application."

We are in the process of raising more funds to keep Bharat's legacy alive. Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 this year. That should increase the scholarship amount to $1500.00 per year.


"Mediocre. The world settles for it. We settle too sometimes, But not you. You are THE fire! The fire that lights those who’d lost, Lost their way in the sea of Mediocrity. Your Flames, Your Roar, Screaming out to us! “Reach for the stars.” “Climb”, “Never settle!” This is my promise. I will not! I will never settle! Your flames carry on. Your roar resonates with my soul. One day, I too will roar. My flames will burn brighter and hotter. On this day, I know you will be watching. You will see how I see, what you saw in me. I will see their potential, Their gladness of no more. Mediocrity is now dead. Your flames - to me, to them, and beyond. Rest In Peace, knowing your flames carry on!”
~ Lauren Johnson, 2016 (Bharat’s student)
