Saanjh Sikh Scholarship Mission

Saanjh Sikh Scholarship’s mission is to work with parents, students, and community members to encourage higher education for Sikh students in California and Texas by providing need-based and merit-based financial scholarships to selected students entering undergraduate studies.

Applicant FAQs
Who is Eligible for this Scholarship?
Aspiring Sikh students who are entering their first year of Community College/4-year-University education in Fall 2010. Transfer students also welcome to apply.  Applicants must be California or Texas State residents.  Minimum GPA of 3.0 unweighted.
How will Students be Selected?
A committee of professionals will review the applications and select recipients. While making its decisions, the committee will consider the following:
  • Student’s desire to grow in Sikhi
  • Student’s desire and ability to grow through her/his undergraduate education
  • Student’s financial need
  • Student’s commitment to an alternate career (careers in which Sikhs are traditionally underrepresented)
  • Student's dedication to humanity through Seva
What Scholarships will be Awarded?
Scholarships of $1000 and $2000 will be awarded to 3-6 students in each state.  Three types of students will awarded scholarships:
  1. High school graduating seniors entering 4-yr universities
  2. High school graduating seniors entering 2-yr community colleges with the intention of transfering to 4-yr schools
  3. Students transferring to 4-yr universities

When will I find out if I've been selected to be a finalist?
