In the year 2010, two of our alumni & members of S.G.G.S. Engineers Alumni Association (SEAA) (requesting anonymity) had committed to give 1 Lakh every year for supporting education of the students of SGGSIE&T, Nanded belonging to the economically weaker families and do not receive scholarship from any other agency. They started giving this support with the title Sadbhavana Scholarship. From year 2011, they raised the amount of donation from 1.0 lakh to to 1.50 lakhs. They are supporting the economically weak, needy and deserving students of this institute every year since then. These efforts were appreciated by many alumni.
These efforts of initiatiors motivated other alumni to contribute towards the Sadbhavana Scholarship as per the convenience of them. Starting with two donors in 2010, number of donors increasing every year but the lion’s share of the donation amount is still due to the original donors. Alumni of 1989 batch of C&WM department decleared ONE Sadnhavana scholarship of Rs.25000/- every year to needy identified student through interest earned on FD of 3.75 lakh.
Objective: The objective of the Sadbhavana Scholarship is to support students belonging to economically weaker families who do not receive scholarship from any other agency for supporting them in continuing their engineering education
Scope: The scholarship is awarded to students who are taking education in SGGSIE&T, Nanded. It covers all the branches. This scholarship is awarded to under graduate students only.

Supporting Amount in Scholarship: In 2010, this scholarship was distributed among four students (Rs. 25,000 each) and from 2011, this support is extended to six students because of increase in the donation amount. Through support of other donors, the number of beneficiaries could be raised to 8, 13, 18 in 2012-13, 2013-14 respectively.

In the year 2011-12, Mr. Bondare Maheshwar Gangaram approached to the committee and informed that his elder sister got a job and is ready to support for his education expenses. He requested the committee not to award scholarship to him so that the benefit could be extended to some other needy student.

Presidents of SEAA declare a search committee of faculty members who are in the executive council of SEAA. One member of this committee is from account section.
