The Delek Children's Foundation Scholarship for under privilege student is open to all Himalayan Students in India. The scholarship program is also open to Tibetan students in Northern California who are pursuing college and beyond. Since 2010, the Foundation has offered and continue to sponsor 26 students in India who are currently enrolled in the school and the college. We are actively looking for kind donor to extend our program within Northern California as the foundation has received numerous requests from the hardworking parents and the prospective students. The scholarship amount for the prospective scholarship applicants in Northern California will be based on the Foundation's annual budget.Our scholarship program is as follows:
- Day School Sponsorship
A day school sponsorship for one child is $365.00 per year.
- High School Scholarship
A high school scholarship for one student is: $500 per year. Unfortunately, free high school is not provided for these children. Each student needs help for four years to graduate and be prepared for college.You may sponsor a child for one year, four years, or even eight years, depending on their program and your ability to provide funding.
- College Scholarship
College scholarships are $900 a year and each student needs help for four years. This includes hostel fees, tuition fees, book, travel expenses, and a school uniform to successfully attend and graduate from college. Most of our graduates go into the health professions. Many parents cannot afford to send their children to high school or college, so the children remain at home and search for manual labor jobs outside their village when they are young teenagers.Your support will make education possible for so many children in the Himalayan areas of India, Nepal, and Bhutan and enable these children to contribute to society and make a difference for future generations.Delek Children's Foundation has a policy of not disclosing information about its donors to the public or any other entity. As required by the Federal Government we do disclose the names of donors above a certain level, but will not disclose contact or any other personally identifiable information without the donor's express permission.
