CFVI’s 2021-2022 Scholarship Applications Are Available; Deadline to Apply Is May 15

Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands is currently accepting applications from graduate and undergraduate students for its annual academic scholarship cycle. Consistent with the foundation’s mission to enhance the quality of life for children, youth and families in the territory by making enriching opportunities attainable, funds for the scholarships are provided through generous donors to CFVI.

In 2020, CFVI awarded more than $312,000 in scholarships and scholar-grants to students in the St. Croix and St. Thomas-St. John districts.

CFVI’s scholarship review committee will make recommendations for selection based on the specific criteria of scholarships available, which may include: overall financial need, academic progress, extracurricular activities and answers to essay questions.

Each year, scholarships are offered spanning a variety of subject/focus areas, such as marine biology, arts/humanities, accounting, early childhood education, education and health sciences. Scholarships specific to students enrolled/enrolling at the University of the Virgin Islands are also available.
