CAFCI To Present Student Awards

Caribbean-Americans for Community Involvement (CAFCI) will hold its annual student assistance award ceremony on Saturday, May 14.

For the past 24 years, CAFCI has provided awards to deserving students. This year, 21 students will be presented with an award toward their college education.

Requirements for a CAFCI award include a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, an official transcript, a letter of acceptance from the college of their choice, evidence of school and community involvement, two letters of recommendation and an essay to demonstrate interest and knowledge of Caribbean culture and affairs. Students meeting the requirements are invited for an interview, after which the selection for awards is made.

The CAFCI student assistance funds are raised through donations from CAFCI members, community partners/stakeholders and from proceeds generated from CAFCI’s annual Friendship Ball. For more information, visit
