Cave Hill Campus Awards Thirty Scholarships to OECS
Officer of the OECS Secretariat Mr. Kendol Morgan says with some 75 percent of
the student body drawn from Barbados where the university is located, recent
activities are aimed at increasing the institution’s appeal to Caribbean people.
“The Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies is keen to increase the attendance of students from the OECS countries, so it is making an offer to OECS countries of a number of scholarships - thirty annually for the next fiver years, for full time study towards a degree in any discipline outside of law and medicine.”
The Education Reform
Unit of the OECS Secretariat is coordinating the programme which is expected to
come into effect from the 2005/ 6 academic year. Mr. Morgan says the
scholarships will be rationalised among the six independent states of the nine
OECS territories. Anguilla, the BVI and Montserrat will not be included.
“The head of the Cave Hill Campus Dr. Hilary Beckles is due to be in Dominica next week when OECS Heads of Government meet for the 41st meeting. And it’s likely he will meet with the heads to discuss the programme further. One of the interesting aspects of the programme that will be included in the award is a cricket scholarship to facilitate those with a competence in the sport who want to attain university qualifications.”
There are five faculties located at the Cave Hill Campus. These are in turn comprised of departments catering to specific areas of study.
