Raj Joshi

Raj Joshi ('54 BA Geography) came to America from his native India when he was 15. After living in Washington, D.C, he took Horace Greeley's advice and went west, earning a degree at Eastern, which started him on the road to an influential career in urban planning.

"Eastern's Urban and Regional Planning Program is as good as any in the nation, and it is my pleasure to be able to help support planning students at the University," he said.

Raj and his wife, Irene, who passed in 2008, have contributed to the Frank Schadegg Scholarship. This scholarship awards a student who is interested in pursuing a degree in Planning through Eastern's accredited program. Irene, through her bequest left a gift of $25,000 to the scholarship.
