Drs. Jitendra M. and Saryu J. Desai established the Endowment for South Asian Students of Indian Descent (ESASID) scholarship in 2002. Starting in 2003, a scholarship is available each year for a South Asian student of Indian descent enrolled full time in his/her second, third, or fourth year at an accredited Pennsylvania medical school. Applicants must be residents of Pennsylvania.

"It is our wish to help other medical students of Indian heritage realize their dreams of becoming a physician," Dr. Jitendra Desai said. "My wife and I hope that by initiating this fund, others will want to contribute to it so students can discover the rewards of being a physician."
