Apply Now For OAS Scholarships For Undergraduate and Grad Studies

Barbadians can now apply for the Organization of American States (OAS) Scholarships for Undergraduate and Graduate Academic Studies 2015/2016.

Applicants must, among other things, be citizens or permanent residents of Barbados; possess the necessary educational background and professional experience to be accepted into the academic programme identified; and have the physical capacity and academic aptitude to complete the programme successfully.

In addition, those applying for an OAS-placed scholarship may be required to take admission tests (GRE or GMAT) if necessitated by the academic institution they wish to attend.

They must also provide evidence of satisfactory scores on those tests to the OAS within the dates indicated by the Organization.

The OAS-placed scholarship award will be withdrawn from any candidate for whom, after a reasonable period, admission cannot be gained to a reputable university offering the programme and level of studies sought.

Scholarship recipients must agree to return to reside in the sponsoring country for a period of no less than two years after completing the programme of study.

Applications should be submitted to Rhea Clarke-Mason of the Economic Affairs Division, Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, 3rd Floor East, Warrens Office Complex, Warrens, St. Michael, by Monday, March 31.

For additional information, applicants should call Ms. Clarke-Mason at 310-1323 or visit the OAS Scholarship website at www.oas.org/scholarships.
