The Eglantine & Saint-Hilaire Saint-Ulysse Scholarship Fund
"To provide students at Meadow View Junior Academy adequate financial assistance to obtain a quality Adventist education at Meadow View Junior Academy."
The Eglantine & Saint-Hilaire Saint-Ulysse Scholarship started in 2014 in memory of Eglantine and Saint-Hilaire Saint-Ulysse. It is a financial assistance fund developed by Borgella & Sabine Saint-Ulysse in collaboration with their family and friends. Eglantine and Saint-Hilaire Saint-Ulysse were Haitian farmers with modest means who believed in the power of education to change one's socio-economic status.
The Mission of The Eglantine & Saint-Hilaire Saint-Ulysse Scholarship Fund is to raise money to provide financial support to families desiring to enroll their child/children at Meadow View Junior Academy to obtain a quality Adventist education.
Who Receives The Scholarship?
Scholarships are awarded annually to Meadow View Junior Academy students whose parents struggle financially to provide a quality Adventist education in a Christian and safe environment.
Basic Steps to Apply
Contact the school principal of Meadow View Junior Academy.
Request an application.
Applicants will be required to attend a meeting with the school principal or his/her designee to discuss financial information.
Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis, so the earlier you complete your application, the better chance you will have of receiving a scholarship.
All families are required to demonstrate their financial needs. In addition, families will be required to write a letter describing why they deserve the scholarship.
Children eligible for a scholarship must be entering grades K-10. Also, recipients must be five years old by the beginning of the school year for which they have been awarded a scholarship.
Scholarships are awarded to all eligible children in a family of Meadow View Junior Academy, provided they are entering eligible grades the year the family received the scholarship.
Families will receive up to 50% of their tuition, depending on their income, house size, and the availability of funds. (Every family will be required to contribute or raise a minimum of $1,000 per child toward tuition. Additionally, every family will be required to return the equivalent of the transportation check refund to the school if the family leaves between 2 to 20 miles to the school).
It is our goal that all scholarships be extended through the 10th grade. However, this depends on funding availability and the family's continuing eligibility.
