Only 1% of Haitians go to university.
Most never finish.
HELP is changing that.
Founded in 1996, HELP is Haiti’s largest university scholarship program with over 160 graduates and 165 students currently enrolled in internationally accredited Haitian universities. HELP has developed a unique model of comprehensive scholarships which fosters success for high-achieving, low-income students.
HELP’s approach goes beyond tuition and books, providing housing in HELP dorms; stipends for food and transportation; advising and counseling; mandatory curricula in English, Leadership, and IT; and internships and career services. HELP also has a library, computer lab, and consistent electricity to create an environment conducive to learning.
