March 3, 2004 — The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands invites St. Thomas and St. John public and private school students in the 10th and 11th grades to apply for the ISS 2004 Summer Enrichment Program Scholarship.
The ISS Fund at CFVI will award scholarships to students seeking to attend academically rigorous summer enrichment programs at state-side institutions of higher learning. Last year two scholarships were awarded to students who attended programs at Yale University and Princeton University.

Be accepted in/or have applied to a summer enrichment program.

Priority will be given to applicants who demonstrate extraordinary academic, as well as community service oriented accomplishments. Quality of the enrichment program will also be an important consideration.
