TCI Ministry of Education Announces 2018 International Scholarship Awardees

#Providenciales, August 13, 2018 – Turks and Caicos – The Ministry of Education, Youth, Culture and Library Services is pleased to publish the complete list of recipients of the 2018 Scholarship awards to complete tertiary level studies.  The Education Advisory Committee met during July to review all international applications received on or before the application deadline of 31st May, 2018.

The following seventy-two (72) international awardees were successful based on the identified priority areas, grade point averages and other policy related criteria. In total, the Educational Advisory Committee considered one hundred and thirty-five applicants (135) applications for further study, regionally and internationally. This year’s international awards budget increased by 55% compared to last year’s budget during the June-July 2017 sitting of the Board. Therefore, 29 more awards were approved this year when compared to last year during this time period. The Education Advisory Committee is currently awaiting CSEC results to decision the local awardees.

The Hon. Karen Malcolm, Minister of Education, Youth, Culture and Library Services, extends a profound thank you to all the members of the Education Advisory Committee for their dedication to complete this year’s review of applications, and subsequent list of awardees.

Hon. Karen Malcolm, Minister of Education, Youth, Culture and Library Services states“Congratulations to all recipients of a scholarship award this year. I urge you to continue to place a high value on education, which led to your selection, and strive for excellence. Remember that you have a responsibility not only to yourselves but to your country; to contribute to its development when you finish your studies and my Government remains committed to investing the resources to provide educational and employment opportunities for all Turks and Caicos Islanders. Education is a constant process of learning that offers limitless rewards for those that thirst for knowledge and are willing to endure and work hard to accomplish their goals. To the applicants who were not selected for a scholarship award this year, please try again next year. Do not give up, continue to work towards your goals.”

The Ministry urges applicants who may not have been successful to re-apply to the Secretariat for possible consideration in the future.

Award letters will be available from August 20th 2018 and can be picked up at the Ministry of Education in Grand Turk, the Department of Education in Providenciales, and District Commissioners Offices in South and North Caicos during normal working hours, 8:00am – 4:30pm.
