VCHT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The VCHT Scholarship Program has been assisting deserving Vieques students with their higher education expenses since 2005. Since its creation, The VCHT has granted competitive scholarships to nearly sixty Vieques students, just over half of whom have graduated with college degrees.They study such diverse subjects as microbiology, molecular sciences, music, aerospace engineering, civil engineering, education, nursing, veterinary medicine, law and journalism, among others. We currently have fifteen scholarship students that we are actively funding.
To maintain the scholarship, students must keep a GPA of 2.5 or better and carry a full time course load of 12 or more credits per semester.
On June 22nd, 2019 the VCHT scholarship committee, along with current and former students, held a celebration to welcome this year’s scholarship students and their families to the program
