Walden University Awards Scholarships to Five Haitian Students

Full-tuition certificate program opportunities reflect university’s mission of positive social change

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — After the 2010 earthquake devastated Haiti, Walden University made a commitment to put its mission of social change into action by providing educational opportunities to Haitians who could then use their knowledge to help others and make an impact in their communities. To achieve this goal, Walden partnered with the Organization of American States (OAS) to identify Haitians residing on the island who would be eligible to receive five full-tuition scholarships for certificate programs in the School of Public Policy and Administration.

"Helping students and graduates lead positive social change has been a part of our university’s mission for more than 40 years. These five remarkable Haitians are committed to improving the future of their country, and we are proud to play a role in helping them achieve their goals," said Dr. Cynthia G. Baum, president of Walden University.

The Walden OAS Haiti Scholarship program is administered in part through the Organization of American States Department of Human Development, Education and Culture (OAS-DHDEC), which has worked tirelessly since the earthquake to provide Haitians with opportunities to redevelop and enhance the nation through its people. OAS also is providing a dedicated space at the Port-au-Prince Education Center with computers and Internet service for the scholarship winners to study and pursue their online programs.

"I believe this opportunity will strengthen my professional development as well as help me better understand leadership management. It will also provide me with the knowledge and skills to become a change agent in my community and build a nonprofit organization with a mission to help the most vulnerable," said Patricia Dufane, a project manager for Catholic Relief Services-Haiti from Port-au-Prince and recipient of a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management scholarship.

In addition to Dufane, four students were awarded Graduate Certificate in Public Management and Leadership scholarships:
• Jeannot Chataigne, tour and visit administrator for Compassion International in Haiti from Port-au-Prince
• Charles Myrlande Gaspard, agronomist and part-time radio operator for UNOPS from Les Cayes
• Marie Laura Jean, finance assistant for the World Food Programme from Les Cayes
• Raphney Rendel, logistic officer for ActionAid Haiti from Port-au-Prince
"It is a great privilege for me to receive this scholarship. I plan to share my skills with the people in my community in order to improve their way of thinking and act as agents of social change," said Jean.

Since its founding in 1970, Walden has attracted a community of lifelong learners who share a common desire to make a difference.
