The Bo M. Karlsson Foundation is excited to announce our 2014 BMKF Scholarship recipients. This year we will award scholarship to 21 young women in Nepal, including renewed scholarships for 16 students, plus five new scholarships.

The Education Committee faced a difficult selection process with many deserving candidates and a range of considerations to weigh. The committee looked at how clearly each candidate stated her academic and professional goals, as well as student grades, letters of recommendation, and a variety of other factors including caste, ethnicity, family hardship, field of study, disabilities, geographic region, and more.

BMKF is currently seeking sponsors for some of our students. If you or a group you belong to is interested, we are happy to provide more information about our scholars or help match you with a student. To learn more, contact us at

Thank you again for your love and support!
