Today, the cost of a secondary education is at its highest, making it harder for students to continue their education. However, the task is even harder for first-generation students. To help, the Broward Alliance of Caribbean Education has created a scholarship for first, second and third generation Caribbean students.
The purpose of the scholarship is to create a forum to address the civic and social issues for the empowerment of individuals from the Caribbean and a wider community. B.A.C.E. has the goal to impact lives through giving educational opportunities, fostering positive relations among Caribbean educational professionals and provide outreach services.
Now how would one apply? First, applicants must meet the requirements.
- Must be a first, second or third generation Caribbean student
- Must have a 3.0 weighted GPA
- Essay: Given the B.A.C.E. mission. What are your future plans to help cultivate and promote opportunities for the youth in your community? (Up to 500 words max)
