About Bhāratiyam

Culture | Career | Country | Community

The emergence of India is being noticed across the globe, especially in the United States. Indian origin people make up more than 1% of the U.S. population, and are the wealthiest and most educated among immigrants in the country.  Each year 65K+ Indian students enroll in UG, PG and PhD programs in the United States. In the coming years, one can expect to see these Indian origin students, scholars and professionals achieve excellence in diverse fields and surpass expectations.


Bharatiyam believes that if the Indian diaspora, with its multiple generations and varied expertise lends a helping hand to each other and works as one community, then the entire community could reach greater heights and contribute better to both India and the United States.


Bharatiyam is a network of Indian-origin students, campus organizations, scholars, and working professionals in the United States. Our aim is to create a community that promotes self-growth and nurtures leadership. Currently, our network includes 15+ students organizations, 500+ scholars and professionals from diverse fields including technology, arts, medicine, management, consulting etc.
