Education can help give anyone of any background the chance to chase their dreams.
Not everyone has the kind of support system that encourages their educational ambitions. That’s why the First Generation POH Scholarship Fund is seeking to support a first generation student of West Indian or Caribbean descent in their educational journey.
International students from the West Indies or Caribbean (including Guyana) attending school in the United States or first generation US citizens with parents of West Indian or Caribbean descent are encouraged to apply if they are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program, earning their degree in the STEM field.
To apply, write about how being West Indian/Caribbean has had a positive impact on your life and how you plan to use your education to help the West Indian/Caribbean community.
How has being West Indian/Caribbean impacted your life positively? Once you graduate, how will you use your new degree to help the West Indian/Caribbean community?
