Thomas De La Rue Scholarship Essays

On By In 1

Graduate scholarships in Jamaica are less common than undergraduate scholarships, scholarships for graduate students are available.

Graduate students rely heavily on fellowships or assistantships – especially in high-need areas like nursing or teaching – but these aren’t available to everyone and don’t always cover a graduate student’s living expenses. Thankfully, a number of scholarship providers are willing to help graduate students finish the last leg of their educational journeys by providing a bit of extra funding through their graduate scholarship programmes.

Consider all of the options you already would when you were funding your undergraduate education (essay scholarships, merit-based awards, student and career-specific scholarships, etc.) but expand your search to organizations and graduate scholarship sponsorship opportunities. Already lodged in a profession? Find out what incentives your employer offers for employees pursuing an advanced degree: Many employers offer some form of tuition reimbursement⇒ and while you’ll probably need to remain at that company for some time once you’ve complete your graduate degree, it could be a good deal if you were planning to do so anyway.

Two students in the Department of Economics at the UWI Mona Campus have been awarded graduate scholarships based on their first year, full time status in the Master of Science Economics Degree Programme. They are Luke Lyeow, who was named recipient of the G. Arthur Brown Memorial Scholarship and Latoya Richards, recipient of the Thomas De La Rue Graduate Scholarship.

The scholarships, which are for two years each, took effect in September 2005 and carry emoluments of Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars. The scholarships are sponsored by the Bank of Jamaica and the De La Rue Group PLC, which is the British company, which prints Jamaican Banknotes.

The De La Group Sponsorship is in recognition of forty years of cooperation with the Bank of Jamaica and reflects the importance the company places on education as a key motor for the development of the region. The BOJ’s funding of the G. Arthur Brown Scholarship is in honour of the memory of the former Governor of the Bank.
