About the Awards   

The FICCI Higher Education Excellence (HEE) Awards celebrate the remarkable achievements of institutions and individuals who have made significant strides in improving the quality of higher education in India. Since their inception in 2014, the HEE Awards have served as a prestigious platform for recognizing and promoting excellence within the sector.

The awards aim to honor institutions and individuals for their outstanding contributions to teaching and research excellence, education delivery, capacity development, technology integration, and internationalization efforts.

By recognizing top performers and encouraging a culture of continuous improvement and development, the HEE Awards act as a vital catalyst for excellence and innovation in India's higher education landscape.
