Twelve students recently received tuition bursaries from the bank totalling EC$21,870 for the first semester of the 2014/2015 academic year. The top CXC student in Grenada, Sanjali Mahbubani, was also awarded $1,000 for her outstanding performance in the 2014 CXC examinations.
This is the seventh consecutive year that Republic Bank has provided Grenadian nationals with opportunities to further their education through its Bursary Programme with The University of the West Indies, Open Campus Grenada. This programme allows persons to work and study at their own pace in their own countries while pursuing a bachelor’s degree through online or face-to-face delivery methods.
On making the presentations to the awardees, Republic Bank Managing Director, Keith A Johnson, congratulated all on their academic progress, and encouraged them to continue with their academic advancement.
Republic Bank continues to provide educational support for young people through ongoing partnerships with higher education institutions like The UWI Open Campus and the TA Marryshow Community College (TAMCC). The bursary programme complements the bank’s UWI Scholarship, which is made available each year to assist one qualified Grenadian to pursue a full-time bachelor’s degree at any of the residential UWI campuses in the region.
Eligibility for both the bank’s Scholarship and Bursary Awards is based on academic ability and financial need. More information on applying for these awards may be obtained from The UWI Open Campus Grenada site at Marryshow House in St George’s, Grenada.
