NLSIU has announced the ‘Shri Ray Sharda Ranjan Prasad Scholarship’, set up by  alumna Swarnika Prasad Kashyap (BA LLB 2005) in memory of her father. The scholarship of Rs 15 lakh will cover annual student fees for one or more deserving students for a consecutive period of five years.

In February 2022, NLSIU ran Giving Month, to connect with alumni, provide updates on recent and planned developments at the University and invite their support in jointly achieving the University’s development goals. 


Over the last year, the University has simplified the process for donors to identify opportunities to support and has enhanced transparency in the process. Donor engagement has been streamlined with clear and simple processes, including digitally signed contracts, digital platforms for fund transfers, and annual fund utilisation reports and updates from scholarship beneficiaries.


Swarnika currently handles the trading business of BP, and covers 90 countries across Asia Pacific and MEA region. Prior to joining BP, she was working in private practice in Singapore and India.

On the significance of the scholarship, Swarnika explained, “My family and I have benefited tremendously from being part of the Law School community, and I was delighted to have an opportunity to give back to this community. My father was a firm believer in the power of education as a means of empowering an individual and improving the collective situation of that individual’s family through opportunities that good education presents, and this scholarship seeks to build on that idea.”
