Sponsoring A Student
To sponsor one of our students and to accompany your student on their educational journey through college, you can choose to sponsor one particular student for all six years, or for any one of the educational options listed below.
Over six years, most HUGGS students go through three periods of study – two years of Junior College, three years in a Bachelor’s Degree program, and one year of professional training. Some HUGGS students chose to study for three years in a polytechnic institute.
The sponsorship amount varies for each period, as follows:
Junior College (two years = Grades 11 and 12): $1500 for each year
Polytechnic Diploma (three years): $1500 for each year
Bachelor’s Degree program (three years): $2000 for each year
Professional training (one year): $2000 for the year
Sponsorship may be full or shared with others. Shared sponsorship is $500 annually.
As a sponsor, you will receive an annual letter from your sponsored student, along with family pictures and a progress report related to their education.
HUGGS Canada is a registered Canadian charity, empowering youth through education in South East India. HUGGS focuses on promising young people who have the ability to excel in education, but are without the resources to study beyond Grade 10.
Thanks to our generous donors, we sponsor young people in Visakhapatnam (Vizag), to complete their secondary and post-secondary education. Students are selected based on financial need, academic ability and family encouragement.
Today more than 30 HUGGS graduates are working in their communities in careers including nursing, teaching, engineering, finance and computing.
