Financial Scholarship

We provide financial scholarship to financially needy and academically deserving students pursing higher professional education or vocational training/education.

Population(s) Served
Students

Through its non-profit status, TeluguPeople Foundation would like to lend its support to projects aligned with its objectives of promoting education, learning and overall development of students in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states. When a donor comes forward to sponsor all or part a project that are not currently in foundation’s programs, the board members of TeluguPeople foundation may review the project to see if the outcome of the project will serve the overall objectives of foundation and consider supporting it.

Population(s) Served
Students

The Foundation has a robust process in determining the eligibility of an applicant when awarding Scholarships. Above and beyond that, should a donor wish to support a student, through this Adopt-A-Student program, they may do so. The student would be completely funded by the Donor thru the Foundation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By empowering these students, they better themselves, their families and their communities. By completing the employable education, they get employed and their financial well being is changed.

We have Field Volunteers on the ground who help us vet the students. Based on personal and professional references, financial net worth, 12 months of bank statements and academic grade sheets these students are awarded financial Scholarships up to a maximum of INR 40,000 per student per academic year. The money is solicited from individual and corporate Indian diaspora living in the USA.

We have been doing this privately before forming this Foundation and we have pooled our resources and networks to make it happen on a formal and structured basis.

Out of 122 students that were sponsored, 29 are successfully employed. The rest are still in their undergrad education. Of these 29 students some are helping/mentoring younger students and also financially donating to the Foundation.
We have also financed 20 projects as part of Adopt-A-Project program in providing school note books, digging borewells for water supply in elementary and middle schools, provide Computers in class rooms.
