Further Information

The University of Dundee is proud to announce that for the third year running, we will be awarding a Jainti Dass Saggar Memorial Scholarship. There is one scholarship opportunity available.

The recipient of the scholarship will receive a single payment of an additional £5,000 on top of the Global Excellence Scholarship.

The scholarship is named to honour one of the University of Dundee’s early Indian students who went on to use his education to help transform the lives of people living in the city of Dundee. Born in northern India (1898) he transferred his medical studies to the Medical School in Dundee and graduated in 1923.

Subsequently, he became a local GP and proceeded to gain diplomas in ophthalmic medicine, public health, and surgery. He served on the Boards of various education and welfare bodies and was elected Town Councillor in 1936. He served the city of Dundee as a Councillor for eighteen years until his death in 1954.

On his death, the Lord Provost of Dundee, William Hughes, said: 'He was a man of compassion for everyone in need…he came to Dundee from halfway across the world but no son of Dundee had greater love for its people or worked harder in their interest. Dundee is much poorer by his passing'. His contribution to the city was also marked with a Dundee street being named in his memory.
