How We Help

The Vernon Stuart Scholarship Fund

The program will focus on Jamaica initially, then evolve to under privileged neighborhoods within the United States.

  • Athletic uniforms and equipment

  • Meals/snacks served at school

  • Athletic event participation fees

Programs

The Angel on My Shoulder Scholarship Fund was established in 2019 to support college-bound students with tuition assistance following the loss of a parent.  The grant is provided to high school seniors in South Florida who excel academically and plan to enroll in a full-time college program. The purpose of the fund is to offset some of the financial hardship of college costs to enable well-deserving students to take advantage of the academic opportunity the student wishes to pursue in light of emotional and financial challenges.

The scholarship provides an annual grant for 4-5 years to an applicant that meets the following criteria:

  • Strong character, as showcased in the applicant’s personal essay and letters of recommendation

  • Academic excellence, as exhibited by the applicant’s GPA and high school grades

  • Documented college offer and acceptance

  • Maintenance of an overall GPA of 3.0 for the duration of the college enrollment
