Project Bridge, started by the TISS student community, aims to bridge the gap between the institute and its alumni.
For the longest time, the institute has taken in its stride the idea that education is a human right and it has had a history of holding its door open for students from all walks of life and from all kinds of social backgrounds. For this, the institute has had a stable and operational student’ aid and support system running under the Office Of Students Affair (OSA) and Social Protection Office (SPO) wherein students from disadvantaged backgrounds have been supplemented with financial aid and other supportive mechanisms.
Today, it would not be an overstatement to say that the student aid system at TISS is suffering with an ongoing crisis of lack of funds. The students who are a part of the institute and who wish to be a part of it are the worst hit. It would not be an exaggeration to point out that there are prospective students who are not even applying for programmes at the institute and then are also some current students who are contemplating their future due to concerns around financial support and fee payment.
While, the institute is doing its best to mitigate the crisis and ensure that the afore mentioned events do not happen, it also calls upon all those who have been a part of TISS across the veracities of space and time, from the 1950s to 1970s to 2010s to be a part of this project and its effort to give back something to this place, which has continued to give selflessly for more than eight decades now.
