SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) - Eligible students residing in St. Maarten/St. Martin are encouraged to apply for the annual Dream BIG Scholarship, a fund dedicated to Be The Change Foundation’s (BTCF) late founder Erika Cannegieter, BTCF said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Every student has different educational aspirations, but the increasing cost of paying for higher education is still apparent for most. By providing scholarship assistance, we can help boost deserving students who want to graduate with a degree and give back to the St. Maarten society.
“The support that students receive from their own community can help motivate them to make it through a university career,” according to the BTCF statement.
Applicants must meet the criteria and provide complete answers to the required questions in order to qualify. The Board of Directors will determine the number and amount of each grant awarded based on the annual budget. Grants average between $1000.00 to $3000.00
The application is free and is available on the Be The Change Foundation website: http://www.bethechangesxm.com.
Additional information on how to apply for the Dream Big Scholarship is also available on the site.
No applications will be considered after the deadline of July 15, 2018 at 11:59pm.
