About the Event
SHF MBBS Scholarship Grant to scholars who aspire to be doctors but do not have the financial means. SHF started with one scholarship in 2020 and expanded to six in 2021. These students are from extremely underprivileged family backgrounds, son/daughter of landless farmer, vegetable vendor, flower seller, tempo driver, or raised by a single parent, with annual average family incomes of less than $1000.
Scholars would be granted full admission, tuition, hostel, and top-of-the-line HP Laptops. The high-end laptops are donated by HP India. The SHF MBBS scholarship program not only provides financial assistance but also connects these budding doctors with the US’s leading pediatric cardiologists and pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons through the mentoring program.
SHF believes the scholarship is not just financial aid to educating an individual, it is going to change the life of the scholar, their immediate family, and the thousands of patients she will treat with her compassion and give-back philosophy that the organization promotes.
The scholarship will be felicitated by industry leaders like Dr. VM Reddy, Chief of the UCSF Division of Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery and Co-director of the UCSF Pediatric Heart Center, USA and Chief Advisor Saloni Heart Foundation; Ketan Patel, Managing Director HP India; Ajay Bahadur Singh, Founder- Zindagi Foundation, and Director- Adyant Group of Institutions; V G Krishnan,Co-Founder, ShikshaDaan, Executive Coach & Trainer; Bindu Krishnan, Co-Founder, ShikshaDaan, Executive Coach & Trainer; Ashutosh Burnwal, Founder Buddy4Study; Prashant Pal, Co-Founder & CEO,PURE India Trust besides the Foundation’s own board and scholars.
