The JHUAN Alumni

Our History

The Jamaica Howard University Affinity Network (JHUAN) was formed in October 2017 through the collaboration of the Jamaican Ambassador to the United States, Audrey Marks; Howard University President, Wayne A.I. Frederick; and JHUAN Committee Chairman, Don Christian, Managing Partner at PWC.

The key mandates of the association are to identify ways to give back to the institution, serve as mentors to current Jamaican students and assist students financially with the establishment of an endowment fund. Howard University and the Jamaican community have had a long-standing relationship for more than 100 years, and Howard has been the university of choice for thousands of Jamaican nationals who have either remained to work in the United States; returned to the island, and have done extremely well professionally; or have made other marks in other areas, globally. With rising costs of a college education and ever declining resources available to college-bound children and their families, JHUAN is bound by the principle that it will provide students with the opportunity, where possible, to complete their studies with the hope that they too will give back to others in the years to come.

Student Life


What Past Students

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.

Giordanne Logan

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!

Courtni Foster

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.
