Due to the current Global Pandemic COVID19, The Grenada Houston Association regretfully announces
the cancellation of its annual Independence and Scholarship Gala for 2021.
This decision has been taken based on the current guidelines put forth by the Center for Disease Control to keep public gatherings at a minimum in order to help restrict the spread of the novel Corona Virus Disease.
Since 2004 the Grenada Houston Association has been awarding scholarships annually to high school, and tertiary level students in each parish in Grenada, including Carriacou and Petite Martinique, and also here in Houston.
In the past the association has been able to award seven USD 500.00, scholarships to high school students in Grenada and two USD 1,000.00, to college students here in Texas.
Once the completed and timely submitted applications are received, the GHA Scholarship Committee
reviews all applications, based on outstanding academic performance and financial need. All checks are
made out directly to the scholarship recipient.
Proceeds from our annual Gala is usually the primary source by which our scholarship program is funded.
Cancellation of the Gala therefore justifiably poses a challenge to the association. It is in this light that we are asking for your help in donating to the Grenada Houston Association Scholarship Fund.
GHA focuses on higher education because it plays an important part in the lives of many, and we know that a little can make a big difference.
Your gift will help give a deserving child new found hope, and the prospect for a better education. We appreciate you sending any amount that you can give before the end of the year to help young people succeed in achieving a higher education.
