What’s New this Month
2018 Mass Media and Journalism Scholarship AwardMs. Jenuka Dhodari has been awarded the 2018 Mass Media and Journalism scholarship. Congratulations, Jenuka!
We are currently raising funds to cover all four years of her studies. Fundraiser ends at midnight on December 31st, Pacific Time. We believe it's essential to promote women's voices in the media. If you agree, please make a gift! Thank you for considering us. Namaste.
Hard to believe it has been 15 years since I started the scholarship fund to honor my late husband's memory. I am grateful that I could transform loss and sorrow into a passionate quest to provide educational scholarships for young women in Nepal.
When I think about the 53 women scholars we've welcomed into the Bo M. Karlsson family since 2004, I am unbelievably proud. Each woman has demonstrated such courage, dedication, and hard work as they pursue their education. It's watching these extraordinary young women achieve their dreams that fuels my love and commitment for what I do.
With International Women's Day 2019 just around the corner, I am reminded even more so of the significance of what our scholars are doing. They are part of a global movement of women claiming their power, exercising their talents, and contributing to a better world. That's something marvelous worth celebrating, don't you think?
Deep gratitude for my family and friends and all other beautiful souls who have helped us stay afloat all these years so that we can continue the good work.
Happy 15th Anniversary BMKF and my warmest thanks to you all!
Sonnia J. Karlsson
BMKF Founder and Executive Director
