Paul Sekhri '81 (zoology) established the Man Mohan Sekhri Memorial Endowed Scholarship in June 2017 to support need- and merit-based scholarships for undergraduate students studying life sciences. Preference goes to students who demonstrate an interest in entrepreneurial or biotechnology careers.
Man Mohan ("Nitti") Sekhri was born and raised in India, the youngest of 13 children. While he started - but never completed - college, he was determined that his own children would have the benefit of a solid advanced education. His children, Paul and Neil, graduated from the university and Paul established this fund in his father's honor.
