The small clinic in India that Dr. Shanti Jain established in her rural home town grew to a 100-bed hospital before she passed away in 1993, when her sister, Kanti, began leading the facility. To honor them, Jain (Class of ’95) established a Jain family scholarship, which will be awarded to help fund an individual student’s dental mission trip. His hope is that recipients might some day join him on his own mission to the facility, in Khichan India, where he has also volunteered.
