Who We Are
The Leuva Patidar community of Surat, Navsari, Tapi, Bharuch and Valsad districts of southern part of Gujarat has a history, which goes back to several centuries. These Patidars and their descendents residing all over the world and especially in United States of America are compassionate, hard working and very resourceful people. These Patidars are involved in various enterprises including but not limited to Lodging, Engineering, Medicine, Science and service related industries in major metropolitan cities as well as small towns of America. In spite of being relocated in this foreign country we have not forgotten our roots, culture and the rich heritage, hence we have been actively involved in local and national organizations which promote cultural, religious, sports, important festivals and other functions.

Mission And Vision
The Leuva Patidar Samaj “LPS” Scholarship Foundation, a nonprofit organization has awarded over $500,000 to qualified applicants since 2001, is based upon the conviction that an educated society is essential to a healthy democracy.
Our goal is to help deserving individuals within our community achieve their career goals, an objective which has the added benefit of bettering the community at large. In short, our goal is to ensure that no deserving scholar in our community will be deprived of higher education because of a shortage of funds.
To build this community, The Scholarship Foundation will:
- Promote and provide financial support for education.
- Assure that students have the information necessary to make sound financial decisions.
- Lead a collaborative network of community and educational partners aligned to support student preparation, transition, and persistence to degree completion.
To those who share its vision, the Foundation offers opportunities to participate in its realization through financial and in-kind support and volunteerism. Read more
