Scholarships & Bursaries
Scholarships are monetary awards, based on academic merit and other special criteria, which do not have to be repaid. Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded annually mainly to full-time Jamaican nationals studying at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. However, there are specific scholarships which are also available to Caribbean nationals.
A Scholarship Listing is prepared for each academic year which provides information on all available scholarships and criteria for each.
The application period for scholarships opens around the 3rd week of April each year and the closing dates are as follows (unless otherwise stated):
- Scholarships offered to (returning) students in years 2-4 – June 30
- Scholarships offered to (new) students in year 1 – July 31
