One student at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic (SJPP) and nine from the Barbados Community College (BCC) will be formally presented with scholarships later this week, from a number of universities in Canada.

The Nova Scotia College is expected to make its presentation this Friday, August 27, at 9:30 a.m. at the SJPP, Wildey, St. Michael, while those awards going to children from the BCC will be given later that same day at 10:30 a.m. at the college’s Howell’s Cross Road location.

Scholarships to BCC students are being given through the Emerging Leaders of the Americas Programme and the Canada-CARICOM scholarship programme which is offered by the Canadian Bureau for International Education.

Seven of these will be continuing their studies at Lambton College of Arts and Technology for two semesters; one student will be going to the University of Winnipeg and one to St. Lawrence College. kmoore@barbados.gov.bb
