    Tri-State Sikhs: College Scholarship Opportunity (due 2/16/10)

    Dear Sangat members,

    Happy New Year!

    Please let your high school seniors in the Tri-State Area know that the 2009/2010 Ronald McDonald House Charities' Asian Students Increasing Achievement (RHMC/ASIA) scholarship application is now available online at RMHC U.S. Scholarships.


    Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. Its programs are grassroots-driven to enable the Charity to offer help where children need it most-right in their own communities. Driven by a passion to reach out to children in need and help them reach their full potential, RMHC works to break down barriers, build bridges and find solutions to the most urgent problems facing children and families today. With education costs spiraling ever higher, a college education is beyond the financial reach of many outstanding students. A partnership between RMHC and its local Chapters opens the door to higher education for graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. The RMHC scholarship program seeks to invest in students who are exemplary role models in their communities and have the initiative to fulfill their educational goals. RMHC's goal is simple: to identify and invest in future leaders.


    Currently enrolled high school seniors who have at least one parent of Asian-Pacific heritage and who are eligible to attend an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational/ technical school with a complete course of study. Applicants must be legal U.S. residents, be less than 21 years of age, have a minimum 2.7 GPA and reside within the geographic boundaries of a participating Chapter that offers a scholarship under the RMHC/ASIA Scholarship program. Applicants may apply for only one RMHC scholarship program. Please refer to www.rmhc.org to confirm which scholarship programs are offered in your county.

    Application requirements

    Eligible students must submit a complete application and attach all of the required documentation or their application will not be reviewed.
    Applications must be postmarked no later than February 16, 2010.

    Scholarship terms and conditions

    Most local Chapters award a minimum of $1,000, although amounts may vary in some Program areas. Applicants should contact their corresponding local Chapter for detailed information. Contact information is available at www.rmhc.org. Scholarship recipients must enroll in and attend a two- or four-year accredited college or university or vocational/technical school in the academic year following their selection. Verification of enrollment is required. Scholarship funds will be paid via check directly to the accredited institution in which the student enrolls. Scholarship funds will not be paid directly, nor reimbursed, to an award recipient. Scholarship funds will be applied toward tuition, fees and other appropriate educational expenses, as determined by RMHC.

    Chardi Kala!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
