INVESTING IN OUR EDUCATION

NYAMWANGE SCHOLARSHIP

The mission of the Nyamwange Foundation is rooted in a quest to identify strategies to improve the lives of children in urban cities. A key pillar in fulfilling this mission is education and a significant component of our educational initiative is providing post-secondary education scholarships to High School students attending Jersey City Public Schools that demonstrate a growth mindset.

The Nyamwange Foundation Scholarship annually awards 3 incoming ninth-grade students with $1,000 each, to be used towards any college-related costs. Awards are based on the applicant’s academic performance, leadership qualities, and the strength of their application. Recipients of the Nyamwange Scholarship Award are automatically enrolled in our Leadership Development Program and are celebrated during our Annual Scholarship Dinner.
