Please share this information with any students who might be interested!

All eligible high school students in Washington for 2019-20 school year are welcome to apply online. Applications are due by July 31, 2019.

Compassion 2020 is a statewide program that will give a select group of high school students the life-changing experience of traveling to Dharamsala, India as “Compassion Scholars” with a distinguished delegation from Washington State to meet the Dalai Lama. Following the trip, the Compassion Scholars will take on personal projects with support from the AWG aimed at inspiring compassion in their communities.

The program is open to eligible high school students who are motivated to inspire compassion in their communities, develop their leadership skills and learn about new cultures. Up to five students will be selected to participate in the Compassion 2020 delegation, with all airfare and lodging expenses sponsored by the Association of Washington Generals. Students will be selected based on the thoughtfulness and thoroughness of their responses to the application essay questions and the strength of their character references.

We urge you to share this information with high school students in your community who are interested in personal development and promoting compassion.
