March 27, 2002 – The Financial Aid Office at the University of the Virgin Islands is accepting student applications for Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarships until April 12. UVI is also accepting applications for other scholarship aid from graduating secondary students who plan to attend UVI.
Each month, the Tom Joyner Foundation selects a Historically Black College and University to receive scholarship support. UVI is the choice for the month of May. Along with receiving scholarship assistance, the university will be featured on the nationally syndicated "Tom Joyner Morning Show," which is broadcast to 102 stations, including WWKS-FM 101.3 in the Virgin Islands.
Through Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarships, at least 42 students will receive assistance ranging from laptop computers to $5,000.
To be considered for a Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarship, a student must: be a full-time, matriculated UVI student with a grade point average of 2.5 or above; demonstrate financial need; provide an official UVI transcript; and permit the Tom Joyner Foundation to publicize award information along with a photo. The application deadline for Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarships is April 12.
The UVI Financial Aid Office is also accepting scholarship applications from graduating high school students who plan to attend UVI for the 2002-2003 academic year. To be considered, students must: have applied to UVI by the applicable scholarship deadline, have a minimum grade point average of 3.0, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, be a resident of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and submit SAT scores.
