Apply For A 

At Lynne Mitchell Foundation we believe that education is a fundamental human right and that no one should be forgotten.  But we know that in many places, especially third world countries, like Jamaica, life is a struggle.  With high unemployment and low wages, many people live in poverty.  Many schools are in disrepair and students in disadvantaged rural areas have lower chances of attending school.  Change is needed. And we are passionately dedicated to making change possible. We have opened our hearts in order open doors for students who desperately need a change because we believe in giving opportunity to the forgotten. Through our scholarship grants, we help students turn their dreams for a better life for themselves and their families into reality. And we do it only for the sheer, unadulterated joy of seeing them shine as they proudly learn their way into a brighter future.  Through our scholarship program, we fulfil our mission of

Loving Children . . . Changing Lives.”

Scholarship recipients are expected to use their resources wisely and uphold a high standard of conduct. Our scholarship awards are outright grants.   Although recipients are under no obligation to make repayment, it is hoped that once graduated and engaged in a productive career they will help honor the memory of Lynne Mitchell and our other memorial scholarship honorees by giving future students a similar financial opportunity.
