The Starfish Scholarships Mission

Starfish Scholarships awards a $1,000 (CAD) scholarship every year to a deserving student of the Olcott Memorial School in Chennai, India. The scholarships fund four years of post-secondary education, empowering students to gain valuable skills and to break through the cycle of poverty.

The scholarship serves as one of the few opportunities for recognition at the Olcott school. It recognizes academic excellence, leadership potential, and volunteerism. It is hoped that recipients of the award will become scholastic role models within the school’s community, and inspire other students to achieve their dreams.

Starfish Scholarships embraces the philosophy that young people can have an impact on important global issues. Thus, its mission is two-fold: to provide educational opportunities to students living in poverty while simultaneously empowering young people in Canada and India to play a global leadership role.

Our Roots- The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Starfish Scholarships was founded and built by Gold Award Holders of the Duke of Edinburgh leadership program. Our board of directors and volunteers are all participants or graduates of the award program in India or Canada. Our scholarships are also exclusively awarded to students who have demonstrated excellence in the India version of this leadership program, the International Award for Young People.
