EDUCATION & VOCATIONAL
TRAINING PROGRAMS

More than 40 percent of refugees are children and youth who flee Tibet in search of a better education and economic opportunity. Most arrive with very limited academic skills or formal training in Tibetan language and culture. Due to the steady influx of new refugees, Tibetan exile schools are overcrowded and their resources stretched to the limit.

The Tibet Fund has helped establish schools for new arrivals and, through the U.S. State Department’s annual Humanitarian Assistance grant and The Tibet Fund’s Sponsorship Program, support basic education, vocational training, food, clothing, shelter and medical care at three schools for newly arrived refugee children and scores of other schools throughout the exile community.

Please help by selecting one of the payment options below to make your tax-deductible donation in support of this program.

In most cases, one hundred percent (100%) of the funds you send to The Tibet Fund for support goes directly to the earmarked program. To help us continue this work, during checkout please select the "continue shopping" option to make a General Donation at whatever level you wish. Thank You!

TIBETAN SCHOLARSHIPS IN THE U.S.

Since 1988, The Tibet Fund has received funding from the U.S. Department of State to bring 15 students per year from India, Nepal and Bhutan to pursue higher education in the United States. Some students enroll in one-year certificate or training programs, but the majority enroll in two-year master's-degree programs.

In any given year, The Tibet Fund must provide full support to approximately 25 students. Since the State Department funds a portion of these costs, we raise an additional $250,000 to fully cover the expenses of our students. We are grateful to the many colleges and universities that provide tuition remission under this program. In 20 years, The Tibet Fund has brought 323 Tibetan students to the U.S. to study in some of America's most prestigious educational institutions.

PROFESSIONAL
SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Currently, only nine Tibetan doctors, no physiotherapists or dentists, and only 19 registered nurses provide health care services to more than 100,000 Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal. Costly college fees in India and an inadequate number of scholarships have discouraged graduating Tibetan students from applying for post-secondary-school professional degrees and returning to serve their community. 

To address this severe shortage of medical professionals, The Tibet Fund has established a Professional Scholarship Program and is seeking sponsors to help sustain and expand the program in the coming years, with the goal of promoting the self-sufficiency of the exile community. Eventually, other professional tracks in engineering, information technology and architecture will be added to the program.



STUDENT SPONSORSHIPS

The Tibet Fund supports four Tibetan-run schools in the exile community through its sponsorship program. 

These schools are: The Tibetan Children's Village (TCV), which cares for more than 16,178 orphaned and disadvantaged children in schools throughout India; the Tibetan Homes Foundation School in Mussoorie; the Transit School in Sogar; and the CTA’s Department of Education, which oversees 82 schools for 28,000 Tibetan children in India and Nepal.

The TCV School at Bir and the Transit School at Sogar were specifically established for new refugees who are too old to attend regular schools. More than 3,000 students have graduated from these two schools in the past five years.
