June 2020 - The Karen Dale Foundation has partnered with the Caribbean International Cultural Association (CICA), to provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the Charlotte, NC area, who are of Caribbean descent, and plan on pursuing undergraduate degrees full-time. CICA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in the Charlotte, NC area.


CICA selected 6 recipients from the Class of 2020 - Kayla Dixon, De'von Hill, DaMaria Gordon, Jahfari Coumarbatch, Allen Hayles-Tyme and Leilani Henry-Thomas.


Through KDF's Education and Literacy program, our selection criteria also require that these students pursue a degree in the Health Care, Medical, or related fields. Based on this requirement, the Karen Dale Foundation selected the following students for our 2020 Scholarship Awards:
