Surya scholarships help Asian students attend school
December 26, 2013,
CALHOUN, Ga. — Rug and home décor manufacturer Surya has donated on behalf of each of its top customer accounts to East Meets West, an international nonprofit development organization that serves communities in Asia.
Each donation will provide an impoverished high school student a one-year scholarship that covers tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation and regular intensive tutoring.
As part of the company's commitment to charitable giving, Surya is making it possible for 200 girls to attend high school through graduation and is providing a four-year college education for five students who would not otherwise be able to afford the costs of higher education.
EMW's SPELL Scholarship program has provided high school scholarships to more than 11,000 high-achieving students at risk of dropping out of school due to poverty or social pressure, helping them to graduate and gain meaningful employment.
