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. The Foundation contributes to enlightened LPS Foundation policy through advocacy for its vision of educational opportunity without financial barriers.
