Description

Samvid Scholars is a newly created scholarship for incoming graduate students who have an exceptional record of achievement and are driven to make an impact. It was established by Samvid Ventures, a philanthropic foundation, to invest in the graduate education of future leaders who are committed to effecting positive change in society.

Samvid Ventures will provide up to $100K, over two years, in tuition support for students in graduate schools across the United States. Scholars will be invited to an Annual Retreat with leadership training and networking opportunities. The program will offer professional development support and mentoring beyond the two years of tuition funding.

Eligibility

  • Plan to pursue a full-time graduate program at a university in the United States

  • Have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher

  • Be a U.S. citizen or DACA recipient

  • Graduate degrees that are 2 years or more are eligible for the scholarship (JD, MBA, MD, EdD, MPP, MPH, MA/MS in the social sciences or STEM). PhD programs are not eligible.

Scholars must maintain academic good standing in order to remain eligible for the second year of the scholarship.
