GES Scholarship Fund

Many of the graduates of Grace Emmanuel School have dreams to further their education in college, but few have the resources to do so.

To continue investing in the futures of GES graduates, JiHM plans to award renewable scholarships to two graduates every year who best exemplify excellence in education and a desire to serve God, their community and country.

Did you know?

  • Less than 1% of the population of Haiti holds a college degree.
  • The majority of Haitian students who attend college outside of Haiti rarely return to practice their skills in Haiti. More Haitian college graduates have left Haiti, per capita, than any other country in the world.

Jesus in Haiti Ministries began awarding scholarships with the first graduating class in 2017. Read more about the first recipients below.

Scholars receive tuition to the accredited program of their choice, plus assistance with supplies and living expenses on a case by case basis. The estimated cost per year for one graduate is $3,000.

Davidson

Major: Agronomy

Davidson became interested in agronomy while growing up in the Artibonite valley, an agricultural area located several hours away from Grace Emmanuel School.

“I want to change the environment we live in in my country,” said Davidson. He is anxious to learn how he can work to improve the soil and growing conditions of Haiti.

Davidson currently lives in Source Matelas with two of his younger brothers who attend Grace Emmanuel School. Davidson is the first person in his family to go to university.

Steevenson

Major: Business Administration
University: University GOC, Source Matelas
Start Date: November 2017

Steevenson was a standout at Grace Emmanuel School for his intellectual abilities and his gentle spirit. His story includes living at an orphanage for nearly a decade. When he was 16, he asked the director to locate his mom so he could return home before it was too late to have a connection with her. He still lives near his mom today, not far from the university he attends.

After considering several fields, Stevenson chose to study administration. He would like to be a director at an organization or school someday, even mentioning a desire to return to work for Jesus in Haiti Ministries to repay all the help that has been given him.

Steevenson is the first member of his family to go to college. He says his mom, who never had the opportunity to go to school, is especially proud of him.

“It gives me pleasure to say thanks a lot,” Steevenson said. “I didn’t have any hope to go to university, and you chose to help me. I guarantee I’ll do my best to make you proud.”
