In March 2023, Rustomjee Cambridge witnessed a moment of immense pride as Nelson Mehta, one of its brightest students, achieved a remarkable feat. Nelson’s outstanding performance at the A-Level exam earned him the prestigious opportunity to pursue his dreams at Dartmouth College, an Ivy League institution in the USA. As Nelson accepts a full-tuition scholarship for the 5-year undergraduate engineering programme with modified economics, he not only secures a promising future for himself but also brings immense joy to his parents by saving them a whopping Rs 2.5 crores in tuition fees.
Dartmouth College, with its rich academic history and commitment to excellence, has always been a dream for many ambitious students around the world. Nelson’s acceptance into this renowned institution is a testament to his dedication, hard work, and exceptional intellect. As an alumnus of Dartmouth myself, I am filled with immense pride to witness Nelson becoming the first student from Rustomjee Cambridge to be part of this prestigious Ivy League.
