International students can face extra challenges when coming to U.S. universities, leaving behind family and friends for educations that lead to successful careers.

In early 2019, Subhachandra Chandra  and his wife, Nandita Dukkipati, made a significant stock donation to Binghamton University's Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science that will fund the Chandra Family Scholarship. It will go to a first-year international graduate student majoring in computer science, with a preference for a female student.

Since graduating from the Watson School, Chandra earned his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Michigan in 2000, and he has worked as a programmer and manager at several Silicon Valley startups. He is currently the director of engineering at Ghost Locomotion. Dukkipati is a software engineer at Google.

They discuss the family scholarship in a Q&A.
