... Access to Higher Education Partnership Programme
THE NYS also assists school leavers through its Access to Higher Education Partnership Programme. This is a scholarship provided for youth who have matriculated to a tertiary educational institution to pursue study in areas of national importance.
Scholarship recipients receive $100,000 per annum towards their tuition.
Partnering institutions pay a percentage of the tuition fee for the beneficiary.
The NYS currently partners with the College of Agriculture, Science and Education; the Caribbean Maritime Institute; Brown’s Town Community College; Montego Bay Community College, and the Northern Caribbean University.
Tuition assistance is provided to scholars who are studying in national priority areas of agriculture, logistics, engineering, tourism, information and communication technology.
Scholars are required to maintain a GPA of 3.0 and are engaged in empowerment sessions and volunteer service.
