We draw inspiration from the sacred red threads that bring people together and symbolize courage in Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Our goal is to create a strong network of women who have come together from diverse parts of the world to support each other in leading remarkable, empowered, and fulfilling lives.
The scholarship is funded by personal contributions from Board members as well as donations.
Anything related to your education – tuition, books, a laptop, travel and living expenses.
While we do not consider grades as part of your application, we do require that one of your recommendation letters come from an academic reference who can speak to your scholastic abilities, achievements, and ambitions.
No. We encourage U.S. and non-U.S. residents who will be entering an American college or university program to apply. If you are an international student, however, the scholarship award will only be disbursed upon your arrival to the United States.
At this time, the scholarship award is not automatically renewable. This may change as the foundation grows.
Though mentorship is available upon request only during your scholarship year, you will become a part of the Red Thread Network after completion of the program and will continue to enjoy its benefits.
