Hindu Scholarships

Although Hinduism is one of the world’s largest and oldest religions, the number of those practicing Hindu in the United States contributes little to that total. Still, this doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find scholarships to fund your college education if you’re part of the American Hindu community. Also, don’t forget to talk to your religious organization if you’re a part of one, as they may be a good resource for you not only in pointing you to outside scholarships for Hindus, but in alerting you to available funding through that particular organization. If you’re already an active member of a faith community, make sure you take advantage of that relationship. Indian and Hindu cultural organizations may also be a good resource for you even if you’re not a member of those groups, as they’ll be likely to at least give you an idea of local scholarships you may be eligible for.
