Traditionally, only the State’s Scholar was awarded an official scholarship, but that has now been changed with the government extending the incentive to others returning outstanding results at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College, CFBC.
This was confirmed here by the country’s Prime Minister, Dr. Denzil Douglas, as he congratulated the students for improved performances recorded this year.
Dr. Douglas noted that as a result, not only will the State Scholar and the next best CAPE student be awarded a scholarship, but so will the best performing student in nursing, in TVET, and in teacher education.
He explained that this is all as part of the determination to ensure that hard work is rewarded, and that young people have access to the type of educational opportunities they crave.
The Prime Minister said there were some 25 additional scholarships available to the young people of St. Kitts and Nevis.
He expressed the view that his Administration has invested a great deal of time and effort to increase the number of scholarships available to young people.
In addition to showering praise on the CAPE students, Dr. Douglas also had encouraging words and congratulations to those excelling at the CSEC levels, in the high schools.
