  "Tell a Friend" Scholarship Drive
June is the start of the new academic year in India.

Get involved with the "Tell a Friend" Scholarship Drive

Isha Vidhya's scholarships are entirely need-based and cover tuition, books, notebooks and nutritional health supplements. The scholarships represent a truly life-changing opportunity for many of our students who would otherwise not be able to attend school.

We invite you to become a part of the Isha Vidhya "Tell a Friend" Scholarship Drive by giving the gift of education AND committing to get at least one additional person to donate. Here's all you have to do:

1. Donate
2. Spread the word to all your friends and community
3. Commit to getting at least one additional person to donate

That's it! It's as easy as 1-2-3!

No donation is too small. If you cannot afford to fund a full scholarship, simply donate what you are able to give. Every donation gets us closer to our goal and our next generation educated!
