Applications should be submitted with a cover sheet to: Adams-Mahepath Scholarship, Sterling Optical, 3000 Golden Rock Shopping Center STE No. 14, St. Croix, V.I. 00820. The deadline to apply is June 30.

Now in its 21st year, the Adams-Mahepath Scholarship has awarded 195 scholarships territory-wide, with a net value of 500,000, to college-bound Virgin Islanders.

Consistent with CFVI’s mission to enhance the quality of life for children, youth, and families in the territory by making enriching opportunities attainable, funds for the scholarships are provided through donors.

In 2020, the Foundation awarded more than $312,000 in scholarships and scholar-grants.
