CAFCI will host its annual Student Assistance Award ceremony on Saturday, June 12 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.
For the past 28 years, CAFCI has provided an award to deserving, graduating high school students who have been accepted to a college or university. This year, 10 students will be presented with an award toward their college education. Some of these students will be attending Palm Beach State College, Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, Georgetown University, Florida State University and other institutions of higher education.
Requirements for the 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 from school counselors/educators; an essay to demonstrate interest in and knowledge of Caribbean culture and affairs; and the extent of their financial needs. Students meeting the requirements are invited for an interview before award selections are made.
The CAFCI Student Assistance funds are raised by generous donations from CAFCI members, businesses, community partners/stakeholders and from proceeds generated from CAFCI’s Annual Friendship Ball. CAFCI was formed to encourage volunteerism and diversity in the community. For more information, visit www.cafcipbc.org or call (561) 790-4002.
