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.
