How to Set Up a Scholarship Fund in Your Name

Setting up a scholarship fund in your name is a way to provide for the educational needs of deserving students that have immigrated to the United States or have an ancestor that immigrated and you are making a contribution to a worthy cause. You can establish the name and type of scholarship that fits your giving needs.

If I Am a Student–How can I apply for a Scholarship

The International Heritage Foundation (IHF) awards scholarships to outstanding students on the basis of academic merit and descriptions of the scholarship.
Each scholarship award can only cover tuition and is eligible for one year of scholarship support. Scholarship money not used during one academic year is not transferable to the following academic year. Scholarship applicants and recipients can and are encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
To be considered for an IHF scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • • Be enrolled in an US accredited institution of education.
  • • Have a grade-point average of at least 3.0 out of 4.0 (or equivalent). Show involvement in their community.
  • • Be a United States citizen that has immigrated to U.S. or from a family that has one ancestor who has immigrated to the U.S.
  • • To see if you qualify for our scholarships, please review our active scholarships descriptions.
  • Scholarship Deadline: May vary according to scholarship details.
