Edu­Dharma is the India’s first online Institution based Crowd funding Scholarship Platform where students can create a detailed profile of them and share their financial needs to raise money for their schooling/collegiate education. The idea behind Edu­Dharma - Education has become a costlier affair.

Children who have excellent education records in the academics are not able to afford for further school or college and many drop out of their school/college due to lack of affordability. Affording for sports tournaments has become costly too.

There are so many talented student athletes but they lack to participate in tournaments due to affordability and thus we lose many unrecognized sportsmen. Also, many skilled students who are good at arts and science projects need funding to take their innovative project ideas to next level.

To make meet the needs of the eligible students, Edu­Dharma was born.

Edu­Dharma aims to bring the needy students and academic advocates/alumni’s together to remove the financial barriers often associated with education. By showcasing academic achievements, students are able to garner donations from supporters to further their educational career.

Designed to make scholarships available to all students regardless of grades or background Edu­Dharma aims to make online educational funding available to students nationwide.
