Grants Program

SEF began giving out educational grants in late 2003. Since then, we have awarded grants to approximately 250 South Sudanese students in Massachusetts. We have given out almost $1 million in grants for tuition and books, as well as deployed more than 200 computers.

SEF Educational Grants are based on the following criteria:

  • The applicant is a South Sudanese student with permanent resident status in Massachusetts
  • The applicant is enrolled in a bona fide educational institution/program
  • You must have a GPA of 2.5 or above
  • You must submit your transcript from the previous year.

Grants may include stipends for tuition, computers, and books. Computers through the technology program are no longer available We are accepting applications in hard copies only.

Applications must be submitted by mail or dropped off at the community center by midnight of July 22, 2012. Please call 781-641-0063 if you have any questions.
