JENNIFER JOSLYN SILL AT OUR 2018 AUCTION

A true friend and philanthropist, Jennifer came to rescue of her friend Shemiele, founder of Dream Jamaica, when the auctioneer for the 2018 fundraising auction was suddenly unavailable. Jennifer got to know the visiting students and wanted to help them get through college so the Jennifer Joslyn Sill Scholarship Fund was born!

APPLICATION CRITERIA

The Jennifer Joslyn Sill Scholarship is available to students who have participated in the Dream Jamaica Summer Camp for at least two years, and who have been accepted to an accredited college or university. 

Each scholarship is in the amount of US $500 and will be paid directly to the college the student (will) attend.  The scholarship is renewable for up to 3 years if the student shows progress and maintains above average grades. There is no definite number of students as the Scholarship Fund is managed to disburse 30% of its income each year. This may mean that over 20 students could get funding.
