Empowering Haiti through Education Fund

Scholarship Information

Empowering Haiti through Education Scholarship Fund.  Below is some information regarding the fund.  For more specific information contact Briette Bryant at University development (616-331-6000).

  • Problems in Haiti often seem unsolvable. This is a place to start.
  • This fund is intended for outstanding students who may not have the means to attend a university outside Haiti.
  • The fund will be built from private donations. This is not public (or taxpayer) money. It's a fund drive for private donations to GVSU for students from Haitian high schools.
  • The goal of this fund is long-term, sustainable, development (graduates will return to Haiti to work there, help others).
  • The initial funding goal is $30,000 to make the fund permanent (endowed).  Once the fund reaches $250,000 it will generate enough interest to fund the first Haitian student.
