For more than 27 years, the Royal Palm Beach-based nonprofit community organization CAFCI has provided awards to deserving students to assist with their college expenses. Palm Beach County high school seniors interested in applying for the award can obtain the application at www.cafcipbc.org. The completed application is due Feb. 20, 2020.
Requirements for the CAFCI award include a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; an official transcript in a sealed envelope; a letter of acceptance from an accredited college or institution of higher education; evidence of school and community involvement; two letters of recommendation from teachers, counselors or coaches; and an essay to demonstrate interest and knowledge of Caribbean culture and affairs. Students meeting the requirements will be invited for an interview, after which the selection for awards is made.
The CAFCI student assistance funds are raised by generous donations from CAFCI members and supporters, community partners/stakeholders and from proceeds generated from CAFCI’s annual Friendship Ball. For more information about CAFCI, visit www.cafcipbc.org or call (561) 790-4002.
