Viya is reminding Virgin Islands high school seniors that the deadline to apply for two Viya scholarships is Wednesday.
Scholarships will be awarded to two high school seniors — one in each district — who have already been accepted to a college or a university to pursue a degree in one of the following areas: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, business administration, accounting or related fields. The winning student in each district will be awarded a one-time $10,000 scholarship.
“Viya continues its tradition of investing in the community’s future by supporting Virgin Islands high school graduates who plan to study disciplines that will bolster technological advancements in the Virgin Islands and the region,” said Chief Executive Officer Geraldine Pitt. “I am encouraging students in our community with an interest in STEM programs and related fields to apply for the Viya Scholarship. We are very excited about the opportunity to provide substantial financial assistance to young scholars as they continue their educational endeavors.”
Applications are available at Viya Customer Experience Centers at Estate Diamond on St. Croix, Tutu Park on St. Thomas and The Marketplace on St. John, from guidance counselors and online at www.viyavi.com.
