Saint Lucians are a brilliant people, but in this day of economic uncertainty it is becoming harder and harder for many to pay for higher education. Access to funding and scholarships is becoming more important than ever in helping people pursue their dream of university.
The 2013 Commonwealth Distance Learning scholarships are open to students of “developing Commonwealth countries” (of which St. Lucia is one!) who already have a first degree and are interested in taking their studies to the next level. The scholarships will be provided in a number of areas, including Tropical Forestry, Global Health Policy, and many more.
Interested applicants should visit Scholarship Positions, read the requirements carefully, and follow instructions to apply to the institution of learning and for the desired scholarship.
The deadline for applications is 28 May, 2013, so start polishing up those applications today!
