| 15/01/2020 | 1 Comment

The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, Agriculture and Lands (MEYSAL) invites all eligible Caymanians to submit applications for Overseas Scholarships for the 2020/2021 academic year before the application deadline on Friday, 31 January 2020.

“These scholarships provide an excellent opportunity for Caymanian students to pursue further education and gain recognised qualifications in their career of choice; therefore making them more prepared and competitive for the world of work,” said Manager of the Scholarship Secretariat Dr Shari Smith. “For 2019, we have issued a total of 193 new overseas scholarships to successful applicants. 140 of these scholarships were awarded to applicants pursuing their bachelor’s degree, and 53 students were awarded to those pursuing post-graduate degrees.”

The overseas scholarship for undergraduate degree awards a maximum of CI$20,000.00 per annum for up to four years per successful applicant, whereas the post-graduate award is up to $25,000 per annum.

The period of application opened on 15 November 2019.

Interested applicants are asked to apply and find more details about the application process here.

    We need to talk about equality when it comes to the Sixth Form scholarships, now that is a rigged system that is totally unfair.

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to: covid-questions@caymannewsservice.com

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
