BML Munjal University (BMU) began with an aspiration to transform Indian higher education and to prepare future ethical leaders who would become change makers in India and the world. BMU is a not-for-profit university that aims to provide quality higher education to brilliant young minds irrespective of their socio-economic background. Many of our students are first-generation university students who not only need financial help to pursue their higher studies, but also need emotional support for their overall development.
Dr. Brijmohan Lall Munjal believed, “We must give back to the society from whose resources we generate wealth.”
BMU as an educational institution develops its own ecosystem that requires support from all the sections of industries. By supporting BMU, you will be supporting the next generation of changemakers and leaders, the innovative research, and sustainable learning environment.
We are seeking support of like-minded value centric organizations to build the university which is envisioned for the community at large and will help in nation building for the future.
BMU is a not-for-profit initiative of Hero Group and has all its mandatory certifications like 80G, 12AA, and CSR One Form in place. It also has an FCRA certificate.
Hailing from Munger—a small village in Bihar, AS is pursuing an engineering degree at BMU. His story is of resilience and perseverance. He lost his father—the sole earning member of their family in 2010 and his grandfather a short while later. As his mother was not educated enough to get employed, she began tutoring other children to make ends meet. She now teaches in a school and gives private tuition in her spare time, but barely manages to meet the monthly household expenses.
AS always wanted to be an engineer, but was aware that his humble background would make it impossible for his family to afford the costs of education. His uncle informed him about the BMU scholarship program and urged him to apply for it. AS secured admission to BMU through this Scholarship Program and is a meritorious student, maintaining an excellent CGPA—and hopes to provide financial security to his family.
SG is a brilliant school student who wishes to pursue higher education at a good university. However, her family’s financial constraints prevented her from pursuing her dreams. Her father is a plumber, and his meagre earnings cannot support their family of five while ensuring that SG gets a world-class education.
SG needed both financial support and that from her family. Her brother stepped in to ensure that she moved to Gurugram, where she’s studying B.Com at BMU. Aided by BMU’s scholarship and family support, she is now on the right path to realise her dreams and be a pillar of support for her family. SG believes that this course helps her feel confident about her success in the future.
The pandemic had nearly dashed AY’s dreams of pursuing a career in engineering to the ground. His father lost his job during the lockdown, and his mother suffered a stroke, leading them to take the extreme step of selling their house for her treatment. However, even with all the odds pitted against him, AY was determined to study engineering and secure his family’s future.
Hope came in the form of a scholarship from BMU, which enabled AY to study engineering at a world-class institution. Motivated and more determined than ever before, AY is studying hard and consistently participating in techie clubs and university events. The vibrant and encouraging atmosphere at the university has helped him realise his dreams, and he wishes to get his brother admitted to the same university.
In AY’s own words:
‘I couldn’t think of getting admission into a university like BMU, if I had not gotten financial aid. I will work hard and make my teachers and parents proud of me.’
Hailing from Agra, UP, RK aspired to be a lawyer—and the first-generation university student in her family. However, her family’s humble means and her father’s loss of income due to the COVID-19 lockdown forced them to sell their land and belongings to make ends meet and keep RK in school. It was decided that RK would either not study further, or take a gap year until things got better.
BMU’s scholarship program was godsend for RK as she was able to get admission to a course of her choice in a world-class university. She finds the law faculty at BMU to be extremely helpful, warm and encouraging, and her peers and seniors to be exceptionally supportive. She is determined to become a good lawyer and a spokesperson for those who lack representation in our legal system due to economic constraints.
BMU aspires to develop an entrepreneurial ecosystem and help the community to nurture entrepreneurship. Keeping with the same entrepreneurial spirit, we have launched a programme ‘Mera Business’. The purpose of this programme is to train 1,000 rural women entrepreneurs in 1,000 days, to help them start or expand their businesses.
We would like to invite you to become part of their journey and support them. A successful woman entrepreneur will uplift the community along with her. So, you would be supporting not only one business but an entire commune, by funding ‘Mera Business’ cohorts.
