Mumbai: Days after TOI reported on May 23 about 16– yearold Gautam Gauba, who battled bone cancer to score 93.2% in his CBSE Class X board exams, a suburban college has offered Rs 3.5 lakh scholarship to him. The amount will not only cover his education expenses in the next two years, but also the cost of IIT– JEE coaching.

Last year, T P Bhatia College in Kandivli (W) decided to start a scholarship scheme for 10 deserving students keen on joining the IITs. "The decision was taken last year, but it was a bit late and so, we couldn’t find any student. Gautam is the first one to be awarded this scholarship and we couldn’t have offered it to a more deserving student," said Sangeeta Srivastava, principal of the college. Gautam has already confirmed his admission to the college in the science stream.
