  • Scholarship Description
  • Swami Dayanand Education Foundation was established in 2015 with a mission to provide financial assistance to students of lower income families to meet a part of their day-to-day expenses while pursuing graduate studies in colleges and universities. We strongly believe in the lifelong benefits that a good college education can impart, and we are pleased to be able to assist and encourage promising students seeking that opportunity.

    It is our goal to support the aspirations of students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement to build on their achievements in college and to make significant contributions to society.

    Eligible applicants must be current high school seniors who attended a public, parochial, or private school in the Greater Houston area with a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a commitment to learning and community service. Recipients must have success in the face of adversity and significant financial need. Preference will be given to students whose parents have not graduated from accredited American four-year colleges or universities. Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S and must have been accepted into an accredited college/university.

    Up to twenty high school seniors will be selected to receive scholarships of $2,000 annually to attend any nationally accredited two or four-year college to which they have been admitted for full time study. The students need to maintain a minimum of 3.0 GPA.

    The scholarship may be used to pay tuition, room and board, fees, and other educational expenses. Applications may be obtained at our website. We suggest that you make and keep a copy of your completed application for future reference.

    Applications will be judged by staff members of Swami Dayanand Education Foundation, professional educators, and others. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
