Give 30 Young Tibetans the Gift of Education



In many Tibetan areas, distance, lack of funding, outdated facilities, and language barriers create significant challenges for students. Some scholarships do cover tuition but fall short on living expenses, which can be as high as 50% of all costs. Many graduate students aren't financially independent. This project will support the tuition and living costs for thirty PhD and master's-degree Tibetan students in a diverse range of professions. Give access to education, transform a generation.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Education is the bedrock of social and economic development. A strong education system, relevant to the needs and culture of its students, not only prepares individuals for future employment, it empowers them to participate in the conversation about their future and guides development across the region. In many communities, however, lack of access constrains the development not only of individuals but also of the education system at large.

How will this project solve this problem?

Outstanding individuals who are committed to improving the Tibetan-medium education system and the overall quality of life in Tibetan areas will be supported in costs of tuition, meals, books, and living accommodations, and will pave the way for transforming a generation.

Potential Long Term Impact

We have a longstanding commitment to improving educational opportunities on the Tibetan Plateau, thereby empowering individuals and communities to better cope with a rapidly changing economic landscape. We focus on students who truly excel in their academic and professional work. This project will become a model in providing Tibetans with the means to access higher education, and for creating wealth, improving lives, and strengthening communities on the Tibetan Plateau.
