Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, SMHA established a Critical Difference Scholarship Program.Through this program, SMHA awarded eight $20,000 scholarships to young people in the sugar cane areas where SMHA works.

In return, recipients agreed to return something of value to the community from which they came after they graduated. This can be in the form of community service or a financial contribution toward the education of others. These Critical Difference students developed and implemented strategies to involve youth in positive outreach activities during college breaks in their communities.

Four of the Critical Difference Scholarship awardees chose to work in education with youth in nearby communities. Three former recipients continued studies in medicine and in the legal profession. One more recipient graduated in December of 2004 with a degree in psychology
