The Peoples Education Society (PES) was established in 1972, in Bangalore, with the objective of developing an institution offering need-based education. Prof. M.R. Doreswamy founded PES with a vision “to create professionally superior and ethically strong global manpower”. He established the Pre-University College in the early seventies and followed it up with institutions for pursuing degrees of: Bachelor of Commerce (1980), Diploma of Pharmacy (1982), Polytechnic (1983), Bachelor of Science (1984), Bachelor of Engineering (1988), Bachelor of Business Management (1994), Master of Computer Applications (1977), Master of Business Administration (1977) and the Master of Science – Microbiology (1998). On the inauguration of the Silver Jubilee Complex (worth Rs.15 crores), in the second week of March 2000, the management of PES initiated several programs to step up the quality of the activities in the new millennium. Mobilization of Rs.1 crore as seed capital towards an endowment fund is one of them. The institute intends to set up the ‘PES Endowment Fund’ to support the following causes:
|Rs. 500/-||Distinction Awards|
|Rs. 5000/-||Student Assistantships|
|Rs. 5000/-||Poor Students Tuition Fee Waivers|
|Rs. 5000/-||Poor Students Hostel Fee Waivers|
|Rs. 10,000/-||Outstanding Students Awards|
|Rs. 10,000/-||Cash Award for Rank Holders|
|Rs. 10,000/–||Outstanding Faculty Awards|
|Rs. 50,000/- –||Faculty Chair Contributions|
|Rs. 5,00,000/-||Community Development Contributions|
The Management of PES proposes to use only the interest earned on this fund to support the above mentioned activities. The institution will cover the balance until adequate funds are collected. This endeavour required a sum of over Rs.12 lakhs last year.
Projects like these can be undertaken only with the confidence and generosity of various sections of the society. The support extended by patrons like you, has been the primary reason for the substantial growth of our institution. Your contribution would greatly assist in making your PES a world-class institution.
Partner us in the service of society.
