A Program that Makes all the Difference

Foundation For Excellence’s goals are aligned with SDG Goal 4, which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” FFE scholars are usually “First Generation Learners’, from underserved, and economically constrained backgrounds. The Foundation for Excellence & A World of Opportunity (FFE-AWOO) Scholarship Program aims to transform the lives of academically gifted and financially needy students from all over India by enabling access and support of Engineering, Medical, Law and BPharma courses.  Financial and other assistance provided through the FFE-AWOO Scholarship program shall propel such students to a successful professional career in a single generation, lifting their families out of the poverty cycle.

FFE finds bright and deserving students with financially constrained backgrounds who performed exceptionally well at state and national level entrance exams. Once a facilitator verifies the student’s financial need, the scholarship is awarded and their journey begins.

While the Program’s main focus is providing financial support for qualified students, FFE’s assistance extends beyond finances and includes training, mentorship and advice from a vast network of donors and alumni. This assistance is available irrespective of the applicant’s caste, community, gender or religion. The only eligibility criteria for the Program are academic performance and family income.
