Monday, April 10, 2006 – The National Community Foundation will today April 12th, meet with its 90 scholarship holders and their parents for discussion on matters of concern with a view to press ahead on common ground.

The latest figures from the NCF indicate that from its inception in August of 2002 to February 28, 2006, the Foundation has disbursed almost EC$800,000.00 to assist needy and disadvantaged students in meeting the cost of secondary and tertiary education.

Administrative Officer of the NCF Clarita Monrose said the NCF has engaged parents and students in dialogue to ensure that channels of communication remain open, friendly and accessible to beneficiaries.

“ This meeting will assist us in finding out what issues are effecting those scholarship holders and it will also give us an opportunity to speak with those students in order to make the scholarship a better one. The NCF would like to remind the scholarship holders along with parents to attend this very important meeting. It will be held on the fifth floor of the NIC Building in the conference room .”

Ms. Monrose said scholarship holders come from secondary schools across the island as well as the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College..

The NCF is also reminding the public of its biggest fund-raising activity – the “National Telethon” scheduled for April 23rd at Pigeon Island. The scholarship programme is but one of the philanthropic ventures which is supported by the proceeds of the NCF's National telethon.
