GES Scholarship Fund

Many of the graduates of Grace Emmanuel School have dreams to further their education, but few have the resources to do so. To continue investing in the futures of GES graduates, JiHM plans to award renewable scholarships to graduates every year who best exemplify excellence in education and a desire to serve God, their community and country.

JiHM began awarding scholarships with Grace Emmanuel School’s first graduating class in 2017. Read more about the recipients below. This year, we will send 9 graduates to college or trade school.

Scholars receive tuition to the program of their choice, plus assistance with supplies and living expenses on a case by case basis. The estimated cost per year for one scholar for university is $4,500, and $2,600 for trade school.

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.
