EmpowerU has launched its 2021 EmpowerU Scholars Fund as its first-ever academic scholarship for Caribbean students. Winners will be awarded a US $1,000 scholarship as part of tuition assistance at any college or university of their choosing. The application deadline is August 1.
This first academic scholarship aims at supporting young Caribbean students pursuing tertiary education (Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral degree). This scholarship is aimed at supporting eligible students with tuition and book fee assistance. The number of winners awarded will be based on available funds.
Parents and students can learn more about application details, documents required, other free services,
college resources, and more via www.empoweru.online/scholarships.
EmpowerU founder Harsha Parchani said thanks to generous donors, EmpowerU can support young people with this scholarship.
With limited to no financial opportunities available to Caribbean students, EmpowerU hopes to bridge this financial gap.
Born and raised on St. Maarten, Harsha is a graduate of Learning Unlimited and the University of Michigan with a degree in Electrical Engineering. She is an engineer with the Microsoft Corporation. She is a former member of youth newspaper Teen Times.
