The family of Raj Mehta established this scholarship in memory of Raj, who passed away in March 2020.
Raj was a student at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering. He was a man of many talents, excelling academically and pursuing many hobbies and passions. Raj was a second-degree Karate black belt, expert drummer, star on the Duke Bhangra team and active member of the Camp Kesem community. His friends and family knew him as a fitness expert, car enthusiast and a technology wiz.
Raj was everyone’s friend. Whether he met someone briefly or knew them since childhood, he had the ability to effortlessly connect with people. His smile was contagious. He was there to party with his friends and pick them up when they were feeling low.
Social justice was always on his mind and he aspired to use technology to make the world a more just and equitable place.
He leaves a lasting impact across the community. He is dearly missed by his friends and family.Give to this fund
