JHUAN Scholarship Program

The cost of college education is steadily rising while the resources available to Jamaican international students pursuing higher education and their families are declining. JHUAN is combatting this challenge through the creation of a scholarship program established to provide additional opportunities for students from Jamaica and of Jamaican heritage to gain financial aid.

The scholarship offers financial support and mentorship to full time students in any major at Howard University. Each year, students are invited to apply for scholarships to offset the cost of their demonstrated financial need.

Who Can Apply

JHUAN Scholarship Eligibility

Resources for
Student Admissions

Howard University welcomes applications from talented international students as freshmen; that is, students who have never been admitted to a degree program at Howard University or any other post-secondary institution of higher education. International students are advised to begin the admission process at least one year prior to the time they wish to enter the University because additional time is usually essential for submission of required tests, academic documents, evaluations and immigration-related matters.
