In order to perpetuate the memory of P.R. Krishnaiah, a Visiting Scholars Program was started at Penn State in 1992. Under this program, outstanding scholars are invited to visit the CMA to give lectures and/or participate in research work. This program was led by Professor C. R. Rao, the director of the CMA from 1992 to 2003. Now this program has become P.R. Krishnaiah Memorial Lectures.
