In 1999, the Devi Bhargava memorial fund was established by her family and is used to provide two awards annually:
- Staff Award
- We recognize a Madison College faculty or staff member who has consistently demonstrated empathy, creativity, and partnership in educating students with disabilities.
- This award is presented at an employee recognition event in the last week of April each year.
- Student Award
- We recognize a graduating student with a disability that has achieved distinction in their education and/or service to the college.
- This award is presented at the Student Success Awards Banquet held in the last week of April each year.
Both awards include a cash prize and a certificate of recognition. Winners are notified by the Madison College Director of Disability Resource Services approximately one month prior to the event date.
