Singh Family Scholarship

Singh Family Scholarship

This scholarship was established by Robin Singh in honor of her parents, Asha and Iqbal Singh.

Robin decided to start this scholarship due to the passion that Asha and Iqbal had for helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds receive a fair chance at getting a proper education.

The award is intended for any incoming college freshman or sophomore who would be the first member in their family to try and pursue higher education past an elementary school level.

Applicants may attend any accredited two-year or four-year non-profit postsecondary institutions of learning.
