About

Now everyone can easily start a scholarship
in their family or company name.

The Farmani Group is excited to announce a new program in which artists, patrons, companies, friends and families have the opportunity to give back to the arts and education community by creating their own grants and scholarships.

Grant Pad was created to facilitate the process of creating grants from individuals and corporations with the click of a few buttons.

Most people think grants and scholarships are only provided by big foundations or wealthy families, but the fact is that even a small scholarship, given by you, can help achieve someone's dream.  You have the ability to create a scholarship to empower people all over the world.

No scholarship is too small or too large. We will make sure with the help of an appointed jury panel the funds you provide go to a deserving recipient.

Through this program companies and individuals will design all aspects of their own scholarship including scholarship title, who it is offered to, gift amount, theme or genre, rules and regulations, deadlines, and deliverables.

Grant Pad is a project of the Farmani Group Ltd.
