INDIA GIRLS SCHOLARSHIP CAMPAIGN

Enable a Young Woman in India to Realize Her University Dreams & Change the Course of Her Life

For many youth from rural, impoverished, and low caste communities, the dream of pursuing higher education feels unattainable. And to be female on top of that adds a whole new level of socio-cultural stressors. However, it is exactly those young women who are able to move forward in their education and obtain a degree and/or professional training who have the greatest potential for breaking the cycle of poverty in their communities.

Building off the success of our Visions Youth Guidance & Support Program from last year, a new batch of young women were selected to receive a Visions scholarship in 2017. These young women all hail from disadvantaged, and mostly rural dalit, communities throughout Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry. Over the last several months, each of these young women have been receiving support with college applications, career counseling, interviews, English-language training, field visits, scholarship / financial aid assistance, and more. Today, they are all enrolled at their chosen institutions and are ready to go!

In order to make their dreams a reality though, they each need minor financial assistance for tuition and living expenses. We are thus seeking individual sponsors for each of these 20 high-achieving young women (14 girls from the 2017 batch + 6 girls now in their second year from our 2016 batch). To view their individual profiles, simply click their names.

Please become a sponsor today by setting up a recurring contribution of just $25/month, and we’ll keep you informed of your student's progress over the next year! To sign up, simply click the button below. If you have a preference for which student you'd like to sponsor, simply make a note of it in the subject line of your donation. Otherwise, we'll randomly assign a student to you. Thanks so much!
