Ten Grenadian students will soon undertake studies in Trinidad and Tobago.
This was announced by Minister for Economic Development, Trade, Planning and Cooperatives, Oliver Joseph during last week’s post-Cabinet press briefing.
Minister Joseph told the local media that the students would take up their scholarship opportunities as part of an established agreement between Grenada and the twin-island Republic.
He said that seven students will pursue their education at the University of the West Indies (UWI), one at the University of Trinidad and Tobago, while two will pursue their education at the University of the Southern Caribbean.
He stated that the scholarships agreement is Trinidad and Tobago’s way of assisting Grenada with capacity building.
The scholarships offered are in the areas of Food and Nutrition, Economics and International Relations, Visual Arts, Dental Surgery, Fashion Design, Industrial Engineering, Agricultural Science and Social Works.
The government minister is confident that the students would do Grenada proud.
