1,000 Dreams Fund Unveils Our 2023 Paliwal Club of 100 S.T.E.A.M. and Music Scholars Winners!

We are proud to announce our Paliwal Club of 100 S.T.E.A.M. Scholars and Music Scholars Program Winners for 2023!

The arts and the sciences are vital to society, and women need to have a seat at the table. That’s where Paliwal Club of 100 comes in.

Since 2019, the Paliwal Club of 100 has been supporting high-potential young women in S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), thanks to our incredible partnership with Ila and Dinesh Paliwal Foundation and their two children, Aasheesh (“ShiShi”) and Shriya. 

In 2021, we added the Music Scholars program. When we advance women in both the arts and sciences, we advance society.

The mission behind both the S.T.E.A.M. Scholars and the Music Scholars programs is to help accelerate students’ progress in school while providing continued support through their transition into the workforce.

“We are proud to support these emerging leaders in S.T.E.A.M. and music, and hope the funding provided through the scholarships will fuel their dreams even further,” said Shriya Paliwal. “It is clear they have already made important strides in their respective fields, and we know that they will continue to do great things in the years to come.”

Our 10 winners each receive $1,000 scholarships to assist with educational opportunities that extend beyond tuition. That could be anything from research-related costs, to travel for conventions and/or educational conferences, graduate school exam or entrance fees, instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits, and more.
