The Balkhi Foundation Higher Education Scholarship seeks to help talented young people make college more attainable through a $1000 scholarship. These one year awards are granted to exceptional high school seniors accepted to a US based college or university who demonstrate a financial need. To be eligible for the award, students must have at minimum a 3.5 (weighted or unweighted) GPA.
Of students who apply to the Balkhi Foundation’s Higher Education Scholarship, students in Florida majoring in Education are eligible to be considered as the Balkhi Foundation’s Rotary Scholar.
