Offering scholarships to Sagicor clients, children of clients, and children of Sagicor team members, the Sagicor Foundation is set to disburse close to $10 million in new scholarships to support students.

“We continue to provide support to some of Jamaica’s brightest as part of our mandate to aid the education sector. Year after year we are inspired by the stories of some of our country’s youth who despite their various challenges, excel academically and are tenacious about achieving their professional dreams. This scholarship programme is geared towards encouraging them to aim for the stars and enhance their academic journey,” she said.

To qualify, applicants must be pursuing their first degree at any of the following institutions - University of the West Indies, Mona; University of Technology, Jamaica; Northern Caribbean University; Caribbean Maritime University; Mico University College; Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and University of the Commonwealth Caribbean.
