Generation OM Banner

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill

Generation OM aims to provide American Hindu students with tools, resources and activities that support and further their education and understanding of Hinduism. As we approach our 10th Anniversary the Board Members have reflected on the results and impact of our Organization thus far to plan for the next ten years. In crafting our vision we're focusing on how Generation Om can increase opportunity for our community and our recipients.

While some changes may seem slight, such as renaming our “Scholarship” to a “Fellowship”, and others seem big–like opening up our program to be more inclusive of different career paths–both stem from our ardent belief that the criterion for success as Generation Om Ambassador is a passion and commitment to serving and leading in our communities.

Our Generation Om Fellows will exemplify a life of peace and harmony with all communities in America, becoming role models for the Hindu community and showing how to function in America's society while retaining their ethnic Hindu identity and culture. The Fellowship is not simply a payment to award previous performance but an incentive and gesture of support to those who are committing to Generation Om’s vision and service expectation. Being a Fellow will take time, effort, planning, and excitement.

All three of the Generation OM Fellowship awards are based on numerous factors including but not limited to the applicant’s: college, academic performance, community involvement, application essays, and interview performance. Those granted the Fellowship will become Generation OM Youth Ambassadors and are required to take an active part in the Organization’s community events.

The numbers of annual fellowship awards are dependent on the amount of donations and grants received. The Board of Directors may, at its discretion, increase the base fellowship amounts based on stellar community involvement or financial need. The Board may also withhold payments if ambassadors fail to uphold the fellowship’s requirements.
