Academically Competitive + Civically Inclined + Financially Equipped
Scholars Today, Leaders of Tomorrow (STLT) was founded by Dr. Cassandra Arnold, a proud 2004 Business Administration graduate from Florida A&M University. At the age of 22, in 2005, she started Essence of a Haitian Woman Scholarship Foundation (EHW), a scholarship foundation and 501c3 non-profit to give back to FAMU; an institution that gave her so much in return. It was a vehicle to increase the number of young Haitian women pursuing a business degree at FAMU, by providing them with a scholarship. Years later, EHW became Scholars Today, Leaders of Tomorrow (STLT), with a broader mission to educate, empower and equip teenagers and young adults with the skills to excel in the areas of academics, financial literacy, professional and career development, and community service. Housed under STLT, are the following programs: Thinking Ahead College Preparatory Program, Fiscally Fit TV Show, Essence of a Haitian Women Scholarship Foundation, and April L. Simmons STEM Scholarship for Girls.
