The Bulchand & Laxmi Motwani Memorial Scholarship commemorates the lives of the late Bulchand G. Motwani and his beloved wife, Laxmi Motwani. Together, as teenagers with their young children, they courageously fled religious persecution, seeking safety and a better future. After establishing a successful pharmaceutical business in India, they relocated their family to America, driven by the pursuit of greater opportunities. They left behind a remarkable legacy that extends to their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

This scholarship aims to honor the enduring spirit of the late Bulchand and Laxmi Motwani, their unwavering commitment to education, service, and entrepreneurship.

It is open to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students pursuing a career in pharmacy or science. While all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, individuals from immigrant backgrounds and those who have overcome significant challenges are particularly welcomed. Applicants are invited to share their personal stories of triumph over adversity.

Describe a significant obstacle you have faced, the strategies you employed to overcome it, and how this experience has inspired your pursuit of a career in pharmacy. Additionally, highlight your commitment to community service and volunteering. Share any impactful non-profit or volunteering experiences that demonstrate your dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Through the Bulchand and Laxmi Motwani Memorial Scholarship, we aim to honor the enduring spirit of the late Bulchand and Laxmi Motwani, their unwavering commitment to education, service, and entrepreneurship.
