Our goal is to continue offering scholarships to deserving students at recipient schools: Kingston College (KC) and Calabar High School (Calabar) in Kingston, Jamaica. The scholarship is in its ninth year and we are pleased to announce that starting this school year, 2017 – 2018 we increased the number of scholarships, from 1 to 2 per school for a total of 4 scholarships to Grade 8 students from Calabar and KC. The recipients are chosen from nominees received from the school’s Grade 7 students who display commendable academic performance and attitude, are involved in co-curricular activities, and are deemed in need of financial assistance. The scholarship period covers the students from Grade 8 to Grade 13 at a cost of approximately US$5,000 (J$600,000) per student and covers tuition, books, lunch and other related school expenses. To date 21 scholarships have been awarded and over US$70,800 (J$8.5 million) disbursed.
