Charity Scholarship 2022/2023 - for disadvantaged young people who wish to continue their education in universities

Organizers: Milostiv Association

Period: July 2022 - July 2023

For the seventh time this year, Milostiv Association has launched its annual charity initiative to help disadvantaged young people who want to continue their education in universities. With gratitude to heart donors, we can say that so far scholarships for over 130 thousand levs have been awarded.

As organizers of the initiative, we believe that young people have the right to receive a good education, which will give them a chance for a dignified life and the fulfillment of their skills. The main criterion for this should be their ability and desire to learn and improve, rather than their financial or social status.

Many worthy Bulgarians from our past have recognized their responsibility to others and society and have helped with passion and dedication. The "Encyclopedia of Donation" describes hundreds of examples of people who donated from their funds to support the education of children in Bulgaria. Aware of their particular responsibility in society, each of them has helped to the best of their ability - from a student scholarship to large amounts to build schools and universities. These examples are so prevalent and so generous that we could understand them as conscious joint efforts in the help of the Bulgarians and Bulgaria, as well as in support of science, religion, and art.

One of these examples is Rayko Tsonchev, whose father died when he was a child and he could not afford to buy even a textbook, and later studied a craft, got rich, and donated a large sum for the construction of a school and a church. Evlogi Georgiev, one of the most important patrons in Bulgaria, who, together with his brother Hristo Georgiev built Sofia University, wrote in his will: “Only my hope that I will be able to participate in the prosperity and the greatness of my country gives me the strength to peacefully."

Scholarship - BGN 1,200

A ten-month scholarship of BGN 100 per month and a one-time payment of BGN 200 for the purchase of textbooks will be donated in October 2022 to the first ranked participants on the list who are accepted (or continue) to study higher education.

Rules and conditions

To participate you need to meet the following four requirements:


For young people who have received a Charity Scholarship in recent years

By 15.08.2022 you only need to confirm to us at studenti.dobrotvorchestvo@gmail.com whether you meet the requirements for a scholarship for 2022/2023. You don't need to send any documents at this point. Until 10.09.2022 we will check for how many students are provided with a scholarship and if you are among them, we will ask you to send us up-to-date documents, such as: a certificate from a university, an official income note, or a note for an unemployed parent.

For young people who have not yet received a Charity Scholarship

By 15.08.2022 you need to send us an email to studenti.dobrotvorchestvo@gmail.com containing the following information:
1. Contact information
Your full name, email address (if different from the one you are writing to us from), phone number to contact you.

2. Cover letter
The letter should include answers to the following questions:

Why do I want to get a higher education? What subject do I want to study? What would I desire to do when I graduate and why? How would my education benefit me?

For young people who are currently students, the first two questions are replaced by: Why did I decide to study at university? Why did I choose to study this particular major?

The cover letter needs to be between 500 and 1000 words in length (about 1 - 2 standard A4 pages). It will be published on the website milostiv.org. If you have already sent us a cover letter from previous years when you applied for the Charity Scholarship, you don't need to write a new letter.

3. Education documents
A success mark over a very good 4.50 is required. 4. A document certifying that you are in financial difficulties
5. Photocopy of a completed and signed Declaration of Consent for processing personal data, which you can download here.


The chairman of the commission is Nina Pancheva-Kirkova, and its members are Radoslav Kirkov and Simeon Yordanov. In addition to the fact that the participants need to meet the above conditions, an important criterion in the selection of scholarship holders is to demonstrate their high motivation to study and realize their skills as specialists.


Scholarships are raised solely by individuals and companies. Each donor could be involved by transferring the desired amount to the bank account of the Milostiv Association, which is listed below, or, if they donate the full scholarship of one or more students, they could directly transfer the funds to the young person's account. Each donor can read the cover letters of the participants and choose for themselves which young person to help. The organizers work as volunteers. All funds collected on the account of the association will be used only for scholarships, no funds will be deducted for administrative fees or fees.

All bank transactions on the account of Milostiv Association are published at the following address - http://milostiv.org/donations

We will be happy if you have the opportunity and wish to get involved so that we can help together more young people to get an education, develop their skills and live their lives more fully, thus contributing to society.
