Meet our 2018 Shadhika Scholars

Meet our 2018 Shadhika Scholars! We’re so excited and proud to announce our 2018 Shadhika College Scholarship recipients. These 30 young women come from all backgrounds and corners of India. Their fields of study include nursing, accounting, education, the arts, and much more. Due to the high cost of education, cultural stigmas, and the threat of child marriage, few young women in India get the opportunity to attend college or pursue vocational training. Shadhika is changing this one girl at a time with our Shadhika Scholars program. 


The Shadhika Scholars Program provides financial support to young women who are leaders on girls’ rights issues in their communities. Candidates are nominated annually by Shadhika’s partners and selected in a competitive process. Scholars receive full or partial scholarships of up to $2,000 per year for one to three years of study at a college or vocational school. The Scholars program itself is a donor circle. Participating donors commit between $500 to $1,500 a year for three years. For more information on the Shadhika Scholars Donor Circle, visit this page or contact
