The Caribbean Students Scholarship Fund, Inc. was officially launched in 2004
by the Trinidad and Tobago Working Women´s Committee, with the understanding
that it is more important to give than to receive and bearing in mind that
our youth is the future of the world.
The Caribbean Students Scholarship Fund, Inc. provides an opportunity to
invest in the education of our community´s youths. Simultaneously, the
CSSF, Inc. will establish and maintain a fellowship rooted in traditional
and historical Caribbean principles-- of using one´s skills in service to
the community and put into practice those principles that build upon the
strong history of the Caribbean.
The Fund offers scholarship assistance to students of Caribbean descent
who reside in the Washington metropolitan area (Maryland, Virginia and
the District of Columbia). The Scholarships are offered to students who
are high school seniors and full-time undergraduate and graduate students.
Funding comes from a variety of sources. The majority of our funds are
raised by activities hosted by the Working Women´s Committee. In addition,
contributions and donations are made by individuals and businesses.
CSSF, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt organization.
(CSSF, Inc. does not solicit on-line donations).
