Upakar Indo American Foundation


Upakar was founded in 1997 and was created to assist Indian Americans who require additional financial assistance to pursue educational, artistic or athletic goals at a post-secondary institution. There is a segment of the Indian population that can use support to afford a college education since about 12.2% live below the poverty line, according to various sources. In the past, 75 scholarships have been awarded thoughout the US for students to attend a variety of colleges and universities. In 2006, we received over 150 applications for the 7 new scholarships. The scholarships are $3,000 per year, for each qualifying year spent in a post-secondary institution. Scholarship renewals are dependent on meeting a 3.3 GPA. Applications are available in February; the application deadline is in April and the awards are announced in July. To qualify for a scholarship, the applicant must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident and be the descendant of Indian immigrants
