Namaste !

Hello and a warm welcome from "ANKUR: Indian Graduate Student Association (IGSA)" at the University of Pittsburgh. We are proud to have you as part of our community and hope you will find your experience as a member of our association worthwhile and fulfilling.

The main objective of our organization is to provide an opportunity to bridge the social gap among all the graduate students of Indian origin at Pitt and share the joy and cultural heritage of India. ANKUR is also concerned to provide a helping hand to the new incoming students in getting oriented to the U.S. and to foster understanding about India and her culture among the Pitt community at large.

ANKUR is a volunteer based non-profit organization. The success of our mission solely depends on selfless efforts by all the members.
