Scholarship Committee Chair Message
Eight (8) Jamaican students attending Howard University were awarded scholarships at this year's (2019-2020) annual scholarship award ceremony. In its first year, we provided a total of US$25,000 and created five scholarships valued at US$5,000 each as well. The scholarships were funded by the generous support of donors.
In just two short years, the collective efforts of the Jamaica Howard University Affinity Network (JHUAN), Jamaican Embassy and our donors have allowed us to provide US$110,254 in scholarships to students in need at Howard University.
It is of great importance to us to play a role in assisting students when the university does not have the resources to extend scholarships to international students. Our awardees not only benefit financially but also benefit from the JHUAN's mentorship program. Everyone is assigned a mentor and will have an opportunity to learn through one on one sessions, networking events and workshops aimed at equipping the students with life skills necessary to successfully navigate the corporate world.
