Children’s Voice International offers annual scholarship support based on demonstrated need and matching specific criteria for children seeking high school or college education.

Children will need to apply for these scholarships on an annual basis and Children’s Voice International will award scholarship money on a case-by-case basis for those who meet the program’s requirements.

Children’s Voice International Scholarships will be up to $10,000 per year per recipient for a maximum benefit of $40,000 over four years. The funds must be used to pay for expenses related to attending college including tuition, fees, room & board, and books.

Eligible students will be primarily graduating high school seniors who experienced severe hardships resulting from neglect, abandonment, coercion, or exile and who reside in Russia, Nigeria, or any Central American country.   These students also must be admitted to a fully accredited college / university.   Specific criteria for scholarship includes the quality of three written essays, prior academic performance, volunteer experience, three letters of recommendation, and demonstrated financial need.

The number of grants available will be based on the scholarship money available divided by $10,000 per year of eligibility.  Grants will be the lesser of $10,000 or the annual tuition amount for the recipient’s tuition.  To remain eligible, the scholarship recipient must remain enrolled full time at a fully accredited college or university and maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average.

We will supervise the scholarship by paying the school directly only for students who are enrolled and are in good standing.  Additionally, every year, the student shall provide a copy of the transcript and a letter stating his or her intent to use the scholarship funds for the next academic year.  When a student violates the criteria of eligibility, we will send a letter to the student stating he or she no longer meets the eligibility requirements of the program.

Detailed announcements of specific scholarship opportunities are coming soon (in January 2015).
