HU Jamaican Scholarship Recipients
I am a second-year medical student at the Howard University College of Medicine. Being an international student pursuing a professional degree has been extremely challenging but with the help of the JHUAN Scholarship it has made the process a lot easier. I maintained a job in order to be able to make ends meet monthly but with the assistance of this amazing organization, I was able to take a step back and focus solely on my education. This has without a doubt been a life-changing opportunity.
I am truly grateful to the entire JHUAN family for selecting me as one of this year’s scholarship recipient. The funds have gone a far way in helping to offset mounting financial obligations at school. As a result, I was able to re-shift my focus to my studies and graduate from dental school with honors.
I am a junior Biology major, Chemistry and Health Education double minor from Montego Bay, Jamaica – currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree at Howard University. I am eternally grateful to JHUAN for awarding me this scholarship. As a student, I am forever appreciative for any form of generosity or contribution in support of my continuing education. Once again, thank you for this gift which brings me one step closer to achieving my goals!
The Jamaica Howard University Affinity Network (JHUAN) Scholarship has helped with my undergraduate journey by alleviating my financial burdens. This has allowed me to focus my energies into maintaining my GPA as well as applying to dental school. Moreover, I am thankful for the network of mentors that I have been put in contact with and the community that I have found in the other scholarship awardees.
