The Balkhi Foundation is proud to announce that it is now accepting applications for it’s 2023 Balkhi Foundation Higher Education Scholarship!
We will be selecting ten highly talented high school seniors planning to attend college around the United States to join our roster of Balkhi Foundation Scholars. Scholars receive a $1000 renewable scholarship for up to four years of college education.
In addition, we are once again partnering with the Rotary Club of the Northern Palm Beaches to offer an eleventh scholarship for a Florida based student pursuing a career in education.
An ideal applicant for a Balkhi Foundation Scholarship is a student who has excelled in academics as well as demonstrated a commitment to their personal goals whether that is through community service, creation of a business or invention, or significant dedication to academic pursuits. Balkhi Foundation Scholars are self starters who have shown tenacity in the face of challenges and a hunger for success. Previous Balkhi Foundation Scholars have represented a diverse variety of backgrounds and high school experiences including community service, writing and publishing novels, completing university level research or associates degrees in high school, or being identified as leaders within their school and community.
Current high school seniors with a 3.5 weighted or unweighted GPA with financial need are encouraged to apply.
