The Grace Scholarship Fund was founded in 2013 to provide academic scholarships, service opportunities and leadership experiences for young Jamaican students of outstanding promise. The fund provides scholarship winners with the financial assistance to help them attend colleges, universities and trade schools both domestically and abroad. Our hope is that recipients will go on to achieve exemplary success in the classrooms and in their chosen fields of expertise – all the while, making Jamaica proud!
The Grace Scholarship Fund Community Scholarship is formed every year by donations made be members of the Community who have donated between $5 - $500. This goes to show that when people work together and give just a little the resources can be pooled together to have great impact.
Scholarships may be used for funding related to current enrollment by the student at an accredited college or university. Students may use the scholarship funds to help cover the costs of tuition, fees, books, room and board, computers, health insurance, study abroad and other college related expenses.
