Giving aspiring students much needed Hope
The goal of this program is to offer scholarships to merit students who face financial obstacles with achieving their academic success. Supporters of this project are giving aspiring students much-needed hope so that the students can continue their studies without dropping out for financial reasons.
Every year hundreds of economically disadvantaged students receive scholarships from Dhaan. Students from art college, engineering college, and even from primary schools receive assistantships.
Similar to previous years, in 2019, Dhaan has
Offered scholarships to 93 college children
Offered scholarships & uniforms to 18 school children
In 2020, we hope to give the gift of education to many more, but without your kind donations, we will not be able to do it.
Students with a drive to succeed but not having sufficient financial resources may apply for support using the "Application for Support" option available at the bottom/top of this page. The application may also be submitted by someone that knows about the student and his/her needs.
Based on the details available in the application and the interviews & due diligence, the organization approves funding for the student. To award scholarships, we follow an objective process aligning with our mission statement.
We also partner with various educational institutions in India to identify needy students.
A merit student Yuvarani received a scholarship to complete her BSc. Computer Science. Here is a thank you note to the donors that she kindly shared with us. Your donation has the power to transform the lives of students.
"Hello Sir/Madam, I’m YUVARANI from TamilNadu (Vandiyur, Madurai District). Sir, I am happy to share one message with you. I have finished my B.Sc. (computer science) final year with your help.

The first chapter for education was started in Dallas, and it continues to be the home of Dhaan. This chapter focuses on undergraduate and graduates tuition.
Dhaan started its second chapter for education in Seattle in March 2019! Through this expanded reach, we aspire to help as many students as possible. This chapter assists students in a wide range of age groups.
There is also an endowment fund to support the long-term needs of scholarships. This fund has its principal amount restricted, while only the generated interest is used for education projects.
Donors may make a one-time or recurring donation towards this program. There is also an option to contribute to the education endowment fund.
Through recurring donations, donors may adopt students to sponsor all semesters. For more information on adopting a student, please contact us.
