Upakar helps Indian American student achieve their educational goals through scholarships that acknowledge academic excellence and financial need. We would like to expand the number of students we support through these scholarships.
We are a national organization based in Washington DC, with donors from all over the country; we also accept applications for scholarships from all 51 states. We have an all volunteer committed Board of Directors with no overhead, alumni for the past 11 years, a group of volunteers, and our current scholars.
Events sponsored in the past few years Comedy Show with Paul Varghese in April 2009, several Art Shows, and a Happy Hour with NetSAP DC.
We are interested in becoming a NetIP affiliate to expand our reach and promote awareness of our support through your strong, well known, and respected South Asian Organization.
Our current marketing avenues are through our expansive listserve, our website, our friends and family, and the events we hold to increase awareness of the need for our second generation students.
