The mission of FFE is to provide scholarships to exceptionally bright students who have serious financial constraints, enabling them to achieve professional success as engineers and doctors. Your help goes a long way.
Every cent of the donation goes directly to the scholar. All administrative costs are covered by the founder. Our alumni scholars pledge to contribute back and support future students. Donations are tax deductible in US and India.
We select top ranking students from national and state level examinations for engineering, technology and medicine whose family incomes are unable to support a higher education. Once student hardships are verified by our facilitators, they join our family as FFE scholars.
Meet our scholars and sponsors who are making it happen.

Welcome to the Foundation For Excellence!
As one of the largest scholarship programs in India, the Foundation for Excellence (FFE) is a registered 501(c) 3 non-profit organization based out of California and dedicated to supporting higher education for brilliant, deserving yet underprivileged students across India. FFE has been pursuing this noble cause for close to two decades and is also a unique non-profit in many ways. Every cent of every donation to FFE goes towards scholarships in its entirety, as we cover our operational costs separately. We also follow a very careful selection process to ensure we are reaching out to the brightest and most deserving students. In return, our scholars pledge to contribute back to the FFE family taking our cause even further.
Every single life you impact through FFE has a ripple effect throughout the community. Help us make a difference today by donating what you can or volunteering your time. We are grateful for all the support we receive in serving the needs of countless brilliant young minds. Please join us in our mission. We are actively seeking out volunteers and contributors every day and would love to hear from you!
