Bridging the Financial Gap
With college education costs on an upward trend, Jamaican international students and their families often find themselves in a tough spot. But at JHUAN, we're committed to turning the tide. Our scholarship program is designed precisely to open more doors for students from Jamaica or of Jamaican heritage, helping them secure the financial aid they need.
More than just funds, our scholarship provides mentorship. Open to full-time Howard University students across all majors, this initiative offers not just monetary relief but also guidance and support. Every year, we encourage students to reach out and apply, helping them ease their financial burden and focus on their academic and personal growth.
