Super 30 is a noble and pioneering educational program institute under the poster of “Ramanujan School of Mathematics”. It stalks for 30 commendable talents from among the economically backward sections of the general public and contours them for India’s most prestigious institution – the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

In the last seven years, it has created hundreds of IITians from an underprivileged backdrop. Throughout this program, students are provided totally free training, accommodation, and food.

Achievements:   During 2003-2017, 391 students out of 450 have made it to the IITs.

Who is Anand Kumar?

 

  • Anand always dreamt of becoming a mathematician.

  • His love for mathematics came to fore in 1992, when he formed a Mathematics Club, ‘Ramanujam School of Mathematics’, while he was still in graduation.

  • His mathematical bent of mind was spotted by renowned teachers, who provide him encouragement.

  • Anand started a training programme for mathematics lovers.

  • It was a free programme, which anybody with interest in Mathematics could join.

  • As months rolled by, Anand contributed several problems and papers on Mathematics to various national and international journals, magazines and newspapers.

  • In 1994, Anand got an opportunity to pursue higher education in  Cambridge University, but his poor financial health came in the way.

  • Having witnessed extreme financial hardship since childhood. He felt the pangs of poverty so much that he decided to do something for the poor students.

  • This led to the birth of a new form of ‘Ramanujam School of Mathematics’.

  •  Here he trained a small group of students for various competitive examinations at a very nominal fee.

  • For those who were extremely poor and were in no position to pay even the small amount, money was never a constraint.

  • They just did not have to pay anything.

  • Thus, the creation of Super 30.

Most of all, his institution will not accept any form of donation.

We need more Anand Kumar, in the educational field to bring out the best in students, irrespective of their financial backdrop. On behalf of “I am Scientist” team, I ask all our young scientist to learn and help others to learn too.
