Rai University is committed to inclusion and innovation in education through philanthropy and pioneering initiatives.
Established by Gujarat State Legislature under Gujarat Act No. 12 of 2012, Rai University provides world class education and empowering opportunities for all sections of society. We are especially attentive to the needs of the underprivileged. We have a special outreach through extensive Scholarships toward deserving girl students and rural youth. These scholarships offer full tuition fee waiver for a wide array of degree programs offered on-campus as well as online through a state-of-the-art platform. There are yet more scholarships that provide completely free boarding and lodging as well for those who need it most. Thousands of less privileged girls from India and abroad have been educated under this scholarship program. We aim to provide large opportunities to less privileged students, who too have many dreams but lack the means to fulfill them. All are welcome to nominate less privileged girl students from local regions to be considered for this scholarship program.
Rai University is also a pioneer in ushering in innovative learning practices that build skills, develop inventive thinking, enhance employability as well as foster an entrepreneurial mindset. We promote interdisciplinary studies, with a focus on industry-relevant and skills-oriented curriculum in the disciplines of engineering, technology, management, journalism, mass communication, et al. In order to give a stimulating learning environment, the university provides excellent facilities on campus and a very creative approach to learning by engaging new practices that are revolutionizing educational delivery all over the world. Hybrid models of learning, interactive discussions, digitally centered classrooms, MOOCs courses offered by Ivy-league universities – all figure in our learning and teaching approaches.
The University believes that education is an effective medium of social transformation. In fact, Rai University feels privileged to get the opportunity to shape modern Gujarat.
Rai University aims to facilitate and promote studies, research and extension work in emerging areas of higher education with focus on career oriented education in the disciplines of engineering, technology, management, journalism and mass communication, etc. and also to achieve excellence in related fields.
