My experience with the organization has been nothing but positive. The people who run it are amazing. They truly want nothing more than to help deserving individuals be the best that they can be. I'm sure it would be a dream come true for Akash or anyone to see such a wonderful organization, that helps people reach their goals, established in their name.

The AKMSF seeks to materialize the life an honorable man (Akash) in the form a scholarship for two individuals whose integrity, aspirations, and aptitude resonate deeply with his own. Just as Akash was a force for positive change in the world, this scholarship hopes to recognize and empower future generations of Americans toward a similar end. In doing so, the AKMSF committee and its supporters hope to make a financial difference in the lives of select individuals esteemed for their potential as determined by their character.

Although I have been unable to attend the occasions when the scholarship is bestowed, I have read the essays of the winners and heard testimony from friends attending to how grateful the winners were to receive the awards.

What's the American dream? Does it still hold in this day and age? Sure, we're so busy in our day to day lives to really notice or consider it much - but the American dream can be found embodied in the lives of many - from young students, to working adults - simply doing the most with what they have to better themselves and the world around them. I support this organization primarily because of the deep impact they create in the lives of those they serve. But secondly because I find the stories of their scholarship recipients inspiring, and I think those are the types of individuals that are not only deserving of support in pursuing their goals - but they're helping keep the American dream alive.

The scholarship is dedicated to a great leader and former colleague. His exemplary attitude and dedication to his work served as an inspiration to all the volunteers running the organization. Once I interacted with the volunteers to understand why they were supporting this cause, I could see how many lives had been affected. Their hard work and dedication in reviewing applications and selecting very promising youth is direct avenue for success. I do not hesitate at all in recommending this great scholarship for any donation they seek and hope to be able to continue making my small donations.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The dedication of the staff

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Enthusiastic and believed in the mission of the scholarship

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a difference in a lot of lives and help a lot of talented youth realise the 'American Dream'. I have no doubt in thinking they would plan well for the future and ensure the sustainability of this scholarship as well.

Ways to make it better...

Information was focussed around application time and donation time. Keep it year round

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of awareness of the difference this scholarship makes

One thing I'd also say is that...

keep improving... the sky is the limit
