It is that time of the year again for the Sandy Point Benevolent Society to announce its 2018 Scholarship Opportunities.

Each year the Sandy Point Benevolent Society’s Scholarship Committee continues to embark on new initiatives to enhance its scholarship program. This year we have collaborated with Monroe College, New York to award three additional scholarships to new students from the SPBS Community.

 

The primary goal of SPBS is unchanged – to support eligible Charles E. Mills Secondary School (CEMSS) students and graduates at all stages whether incoming freshmen to current college students.

We endeavor to provide critical support for students in college and build a “family” of new leaders and future servants for the CEMSS community.
