THE GOVERNMENT will be offering more than 700 scholarships to qualifying candidates at varying levels of study.
The Government’s Tuition Scholarship is currently open and Prime Minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves is urging prospective candidates to apply in time to meet the June, 30 deadline, the Agency for Public Information (API) said in a release.
“You don’t have to wait until you get acceptance before you apply for the scholarship,” Gonsalves said. The Prime Minister also mentioned that assistance will be offered to students at all levels of the school system from the volcanic hazard red and orange and yellow zones who have been dislocated or relocated.
Parents/Grandparents can visit the office of the Prime Minister with their child/children’s birth certificate and proof of the school they attend. Under this programme children will be provided with support to cover transportation and lunch on a monthly basis. The release said aid is also available for those who are attending University.
“I don’t think I can make this any plainer, help is there available,” the Prime Minister said on the ‘Morning Scoop’ programme on Unity Labour Party’s Star-FM.
