Make a Difference with Starfish Scholarships India

Starfish Scholarships prides itself on maintaining very low operating expenses. This allows us to put 100% of all donations directly towards our scholarship fund. Our scholarships are disbursed in four annual payments of $250 CAD, and are used for tuition fees, educational supplies and other related academic expenses. Our scholars are required to supply us with proof of enrollment on an annual basis, as well as their academic progress reports. Our volunteers in India maintain a rapport with the students to ensure they are progressing successfully.

At Starfish Scholarships, every dollar counts. The value of one Canadian dollar can play a significant role in helping a deserving student complete their education. With your help, we can continue to empower students to break through the cycle of poverty.

Starfish Scholarships India is currently registered as a non-profit organization in Ontario. We are unable to offer receipts for income tax purposes at this time.

Donate:

With your help, Starfish Scholarships India can provide a student with an amazing opportunity to pursue post-secondary education. With the gift of higher education, students can realize their dreams and begin to dismantle the chains of poverty that often extend across generations. It does not take much to make a huge difference in a studentís life:

Fundraise:

Starfish Scholarships does the majority of its fundraising by working with high-school students in developing small-scale, curriculum-oriented projects. Our fundraising projects give students a chance to be innovative, to acquire leadership skills, and to learn about poverty. All fundraising events must be consistent with the mission and values of Starfish Scholarships India. For more information on how your school or Duke of Edinburgh Group can get involved, please email starfishscholarships@gmail.com

Some ideas for youth-empowered fundraising events include:
  • A "Pennies for Dreams" Campaign
  • Fashion Show
  • Garage Sale
  • Bake Sale
  • Auctions
  • Sports Tournaments
  • Casual "Civvies" Days at School
  • Car Wash
  • Environmentally friendly projects such as a fundraising project designed with the intent of recycling old materials, or by selling used items to second-hand stores. (Ex. a used-book drive.)

Get Involved:

Starfish is always looking for young, driven volunteers to help run the organization. Although we strive to involve Duke of Edinburgh Award participants and Award Holders in our operations, we welcome participants from all backgrounds and skill sets. We are currently recruiting volunteers from Canada and India in the following areas:
  • Fundraising Project Coordinators
  • Duke of Edinburgh participants/award holders in Canada
  • IAYP participants/award holders in India
  • Web Management and Social Media Projects

Please contact us at starfishscholarships@gmail.com for more information.
