About the Project
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.
Current high school seniors with a 3.5 weighted or unweighted GPA with financial need are encouraged to apply today. 2020 Scholarship applications are currently closed. Winners will be announced in May 2020.
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. To learn more about our 2019 Balkhi Foundation Higher Education Scholars, please visit our Scholar Showcase.
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.
