CPIC Annual Scholarship Gala


The CPIC Annual Scholarship Fund is designed to provide scholarships for students of Caribbean descent in the metropolitan New York communities. CPIC recognizes and rewards outstanding Caribbean high school seniors in these communities. Eligible students are required to write an essay on a chosen theme relating to HIV/AIDS.

Additionally, two awards are presented to Caribbean families (one in the United States, and the other in the Caribbean) affected or infected with HIV. In 2002, five deserving students and two families received awards. Thus far in 2003, seven students and two families have received scholarship awards.
