About Us

While scholarships for graduating high school students abound, almost all are sponsored by corporations, foundations, and faith-based community organizations. However, hardly any scholarship is offered by the Hindu community to deserving high school seniors. To fill this gap, the World Hindu Council of America has launched the Sharda Vidya Scholarship at the national level, offered to Hindu students who are graduating from High School and are headed to a college to pursue higher studies.
