“The mission of SDEF is to build pathways to success for promising youth from underserved communities. We have been providing scholarships in India for the past five years, and just this year, we have begun assisting high school students in our local community. We strongly believe in the lifelong benefits that a good college education can impart, and we are pleased to be able to assist and encourage promising students seeking that opportunity. Our goal is to support the aspirations of students who hope to build on their achievements in college and to make significant contributions to society.”
