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, 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 of their secondary school careers, each of these young women received support with college applications, career counseling, interviews, English-language training, field visits, scholarship / financial aid assistance, and more. Now at university, all our sponsored students are either entering their 3rd or 4th year OR even working toward an advanced degree. One student completed her program and is now working as a teacher.

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 19 high-achieving young women (and 2 young men). 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!
