Emotion took over when CSU Channel Islands (CI) Computer Science graduate student Dhruv Pandya learned he had been named an Edison Scholar through the California State University Foundation.  "I have a responsibility to look after my own education," Pandya said.
 
Pandya's parents are happy to do whatever it takes to pay for their eldest son's education, but the CI graduate student would rather his parents spend their money on Shri Krishna Vidhyalya, the school Pandya's father has run for 30 years back in his native city of Vadodara in the Western Indian state of Gujarat.
 
Pandya's father, a retired civil servant, teaches pre-school through 10th grade for low income students.
 
"They are students whose parents are not educated," Pandya said. "They are students who can't afford an education because of their economic status." read more
