About the Scholarship!
The Northwestern University Chapter of Project RISHI is sponsoring a dance scholarship to provide dance lessons for eight underprivileged students in the Chicago area from ages 13-17. The lessons will be provided by Latin Street Dance Academy. Each student will receive weekly complimentary dance instruction from March through December of 2014, and will participate in the annual Latin Dance Revue Theatre Showcase in December. Scholarship recipients will also receive academic mentoring from Northwestern University Project RISHI members and enjoy a tour of the university campus and of Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Project RISHI (Rural India Social and Health Improvement) is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving social and health conditions in rural India. The chapter at Northwestern University was established in 2011 and is in the process of building a new health clinic in Northern India in the village of Charnia, Haryana. Project RISHI is also implementing a community-based anemia intervention in Charnia. Northwestern students travel to the village to conduct health camps, oversee projects, and conduct research with the villagers to assess their medical and educational needs.
