Harvard University Sikh Scholarship

vidia vicari tam parupkari

Contemplate and reflect upon knowledge and you will become a benefactor to others


The Sikh Scholarship Foundation was started in 2002 to provide scholarship grants to Sikh students at Oxford University, UK. Building upon the success of the program there, the Foundation is glad to announce the availability of a US $10,000 annual scholarship award to one Sikh student who has been duly admitted to Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts in the United States for the academic year 2007-2008. The scholarship award will be paid to the successful candidate each academic year for up to four years.

It is high time that the Sikh community encourage their youth to not only attend excellent and prestigious institutions of higher learning, but also provide incentive to learn and commit to the Sikh ideals of sevā-simran at the same time as undertaking their academic education. To that end, the Sikh Scholarship Foundation requires recipients of the scholarship to attend a 2 week intensive Gurmat training course and occasional projects, lectures and assignments on Sikhī topics during their university career. Furthermore, the scholars automatically become members of the Mātā Sāhib Kaur Alumni Society and utilize their education and Sikhi background to participate in society as practicing ambassadors of the Sikh nation.

I am a young Christian Educator, Philosopher, Researcher and Author from Nigeria.

I have just completed my 5 years research work in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria, titled:THE DILEMMA OF NIGER DELTA EXPERIENCE IN NIGERIA (800 paged) - exploring the cry and groaning of an indigenous people in the sub-Saharan region of west Africa for environmental, social and economic justice. It brings its conclusions to showcase the 'intrigues of federalism vs ethnicity', and suggests- a way forward.

Please, how can I get this work across the Harvard research institute as my contribution towards global enlightenment.

Also how do I explore your scholarship?
