Tibetan Girls Scholarship Program 2024

The Tibet Fund (TTF) is pleased to announce the 2024 Tibetan Girls Scholarship Program (TGSP) for Tibetan girls with limited resources. TTF anticipates supporting 10-15 new girls in 2024. Eligible applicants must have completed Grade 12 in either 2023 or 2024 and demonstrate a lack of alternative financial resources to pursue higher education. Scholarship amounts will be awarded based on actual tuition fees of individual courses, up to INR 60,000 per annum for professional studies and up to INR 40,000 per annum for technical skills programs, degree programs, and diploma programs. Annual allowances of up to INR 75,000 will also be provided for basic food and hostel/accommodation expenses. However, if these expenses are covered within the educational institution’s tuition, only nominal pocket money allowances will be offered. Scholarships will be renewed annually  based on ongoing financial need and satisfactory academic progress. Selected candidates must sign an agreement with TTF to ensure the effectiveness of this scholarship program.
