Funding college can be a gateway to success.

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.

An ideal applicant for a Balkhi Foundation Scholarship is a student who has shown dedication to their academics as well as their personal goals whether that is through community service, creation of a business or invention, or significant dedication to academic pursuits. Students should be dedicated self starters who have shown tenacity in the face of challenges and a hungry for success.

Our scholarship recipients are on the pathway to making a difference.

Our 2019 winners are an exceptional group young people who were driven to succeed throughout their high school careers are are currently excelling at their programs of choice. If you are a high school senior interested in applying to the Balkhi Foundation Higher Education Scholarship, please return in Spring 2020 for full application details. 

Community support allows us to expand our scholarship reach.

The importance of providing assistance for talented students such as these cannot be understated. These ten talented winners were chosen after blinded review of hundreds of candidates, many of whom still require financial assistance to attend college. Please consider donating to the Balkhi Foundation to fund even more of these extremely talented students in 2020.
