Congratulations to all 21 of our 2014 scholarship recipients and big thanks to the Education
Committee for a job well done!
We wish to invite you to our next fundraiser Paris a Midi on Saturday, August 16 at Luc Restaurant
in the Madison Valley area of Seattle. This 3-course luncheon comes with a complimentary glass of wine,
live French music and a silent auction of beautiful handcrafted items from Nepal. All net proceeds
will go to fund our 2014 scholarships.
BMKF is seeking sponsors for some of our scholars! If you would like to get involved in a more personal
and meaningful way with these remarkable young women, be sure to contact us. We would be happy to send
you more information about the sponsorship program!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your love and support!
