Welcome to the Jamaican Scholarship Support Fund (JSSF)!
The Jamaican Scholarship Support Fund (JSSF) is a registered (# 1910073) Non-Profit Organization administered by a group of dedicated volunteers. The objective of the JSSF is to raise funds to assist students studying in a Canadian or Jamaican post-secondary institution, including those who are offered limited scholarships and bursaries, and who encounter serious financial difficulties in completing their studies due to inadequate financial resources.
The JSSF was founded in 2011 by Her Excellency Sheila Sealy Monteith, High Commissioner for Jamaica to Canada, with the objective of raising funds to assist Jamaican students in need of financial assistance to complete their education at a Canadian or Jamaican post-secondary institution. Since its inception, the JSSF continues to be funded through our annual charity golf tournament and dinner that has become a prestigious community event, due to the dedicated work of our committee, volunteers, the unwavering support of our sponsors, donors, and all the participating golfers and well- wishers.
The successful outcome of our yearly charity golf tournament and dinner has resulted in the availability of over 30 scholarships being awarded to deserving students at tertiary institutions in Jamaica and Canada. Without this assistance, many of these students could not have afforded to remain in college to continue with their studies.
Our goal is to continue this great initiative!
