The Amol Ajinkya Memorial Fund Lecture Series

The Amol Ajinkya Memorial Fund, established by UB CBE Alumnus Milind Ajinkya in his son’s memory, provides for Fellowships and Lectures for CBE students. Dr. Ajinkya's generosity allows CBE to host four speakers presenting each fall from universities across the United States. Dr. Ajinkya made his recent gifts to UB CBE as a token of appreciation for the solid foundation he received during his time here as a student.
