Scholarship Fund

The TRAS Scholarship Fund (TSF), established through the generosity of two anonymous donors, provides bright young students with the opportunity to continue their education after high school. With the knowledge and skills gained from quality universities in India, these students are then able to return home and make a powerful and tangible difference within their communities.

How it Works

Our partners abroad select the most passionate and hardest-working individuals to be a part of our program. These promising students have excelled in their studies and look forward to becoming excellent role models for their communities.

The successful applicants receive $1,000 (CAD) per year, for three years of post-secondary education. This allows them to pursue their education and reach their full potential.

Success to Date

The TRAS Scholarship Fund (TSF), provides bright young students with the opportunity to continue their education after high school.

With the knowledge and skills gained from quality universities in India, these students are then able to return home and make a powerful and tangible difference within their communities. Scholarship recipients have been happily sharing their excellent report cards with TRAS, allowing us to both see their progress and share in their enthusiasm! Through the help of TRAS, its partners overseas, and especially donors like you, the TSF has provided an excellent opportunity to aid these young students in fulfilling their dreams, lifting themselves out of poverty, and improving their homes and local communities.  We thank you for your gifts, and we thank these students for their hard work and tenacity!

Some Well-Deserving Recipients

In the words of Tashi Wangmo (BA, third year), “I am elated to share with you that I scored good marks (70%) in my previous exams and I will keep trying to do my best in my coming days. I think I am very lucky … I am very thankful to you for your kind help.”

We are also very thankful to Tashi, as it was her hard work and dedication (not luck!) that led to her success!

 

Our first two recipients studied to become teachers so that they could give back to their communities. In our second year, the two young women (Tashi Tsomo and Sherpa Dolma) were accepted at the prestigious Miranda College in New Delhi, studying mathematics. As mentioned above, Tashi Tsomo graduated with a BSc (Math Honors) and has gone on to an MSc at Delhi University.
