Sponsorship of Students

Education has been one of the foremost ways to improve the quality of life throughout history. It is unfortunate that due to hardships and difficult circumstances, a number of individuals remain deprived of a complete education and it is not something that is easily found or provided for.

Over the years, Samten Tse Charitable Society (STCS) has sought to carefully examine and select bright and eager students to sponsor the entirety of their educational career. These select students come from backgrounds where it would not be possible for them to progress beyond a certain point in their education. These bright and young students are gifted sponsorship of their educational career all through from grammer school to college or university.

Some of these students who maintain a record of doing well year after year, receive full sponsorship which includes all expenses for housing, hostel, food and purchase of all educational materials.
