Hindu Scholarships

Although Hinduism is one of the world’s largest and oldest religions, there are only a few practicing Hindus in the United States. There are still a couple of Hindu-specific scholarships available for those select few students who are part of the American Hindu community. If you are looking for a Hindu-based scholarship, check the links below or talk to a religious organization about possible opportunities. They are not only a good resource for Hindu scholarships, but also for general funding opportunities within the organization. If you’re already an active member of a faith-based community, take advantage of that relationship. Indian and Hindu cultural organizations are also good resources to learn more about scholarship opportunities that are available.
