THE Mission

"Early Childhood Education [ECE] is one of the largest unregulated spaces in Indian Education. Despite research and efforts to improve quality, the gap between different economic sections of society is widening each year in terms of the parent’s ability to provide quality ECE for their children."

Carmel Jyothi Foundation was started with the mission of being able to provide quality ECE for high-achieving children from the lower economic sections of society. Each award is intended to cover a significant share of the student’s educational expenses – including tuition, books, uniforms, and other expenses for the entire academic year. Awards vary by individual, based on the cost of tuition as well as other grants or scholarships they may receive. This scholarship includes:

  • Currently, up to a maximum of ₹50,000 per year / per selected scholar, to attend school at Carmel Jyothi High School, Doddaballapur (Exclusively).

  • Personal counselling about selecting a college and navigating available financial aid.

  • Multifaceted counselling about how to transition to a college and maximize the student's experience.


  • High-achieving students with financial needs often exist in isolation.

  • High-achieving students with financial needs are less likely to pursue rigorous coursework or to score highly on achievement tests.


  • To be academically challenged and inspired during school, after school, and in the summers.

  • Information about how to successfully navigate transitions to high school and college and prepare for, identify, and apply to competitive colleges.

  • Financial resources that enable them to develop their academic and artistic talents.

However, upholding our intentions requires extensive financial resources. As an unaided, private, non-profit venture, we receive no funding or assistance from the government but only from generous donations from conscientious citizens like yourselves.

We thank you for your compassion and support!
