Parents and Finalists, welcome to the 2019 North South Foundation National Finals Page. The finals team is working hard to get ready to welcome you and your families this summer!

2019 marks a huge milestone for North South Foundation. We celebrate 30 years since Dr. Ratnam Chitturi started the organization back in 1989! We have nearly 90 regional chapters across the US and about 25 chapter in India. North South Foundation started with distributing one scholarship in 1989 and has given out over 20,000 scholarships to date! This was made possible by all of you, signing up your children to participate in the contests. Thank you!

It is important to note that this year’s finals is a three-day event. We are conducting Spelling and Vocabulary Phase I contests on Friday, August 9th from 5 pm to 7 pm. This will hopefully reduce the stress on kids attending multiple contests at the finals!

Please visit the finals page often to get the latest updates on the tabs to the left.If your child will be registering for Spelling or Vocabulary, please arrive well ahead of the Friday contest. Factor in travel delays.

If you can take additional time off, enjoy the sights of Boston. Visit the Local Attractions tab for a list of recommended must-see places.
