Continuing Education Scholarship Program
Preparation of trained workers for a time with a brighter economy is key to Haiti’s future. Many motivated, intelligent young Haitian adults have completed thirteen years of school (through high school), passed rigorous national exams, and are not only well-prepared but highly motivated to pursue higher education. For those with resources, many higher education programs are available, including schools for teaching, nursing, computer training and seminary, just to name a few.
Students submit a proposal describing their educational goals, objectives, and motivations. For each applicant, Servants for Haiti representatives not only review the applications but meet with their thirteenth-year teacher to help assess whether the student’s goals are realistic and a long term commitment is likely.
Besides a university education, many students prefer to pursue trades. SFH also funds those students who have shown initiative and promise. Junior is one such young man. He is currently being sponsored through auto mechanic school.
