For the second year running, Guardian Group has announced a partnership with the University for Peace (UPEACE) established by the General Assembly of the United Nations, in offering 10 Global Leadership Diploma Scholarships across the region.
In a statement, the company said this is a unique opportunity for the region’s emerging leaders, adding that the venture received almost 400 applications last year.
CEO of Guardian Group Ravi Tewari said: “[It’s] a unique opportunity for potential and emerging leaders in the Caribbean to fulfill their individual visions and goals of fostering positive change in the communities and environments in which they live. We live in extraordinary and unpredictable times in which innovative leadership is urgently required now, more than ever before.
”He said that from Guardian Group’s perspective, there is an urgent need for innovative, visionary and compassionate leadership at several levels.

“The overwhelming response to last year’s initiative and the many projects and people across the region which the scholarship supported, makes it one of those bookmark events that will show huge returns in time to come.
”The company said one of the positive spin off effects has been the number of Caribbean students outside of the scholarship initiative who have been registering at the UN University for Peace.
The University said the Caribbean region is one of the largest catchment areas for global students as a result of the exposure provided through the Guardian Group collaboration.
The scholarship is open to anyone who lives in the Caribbean.
Applicants must indicate through an essay, the ways in which the scholarship would help them in contributing to the region.
The company said an independent panel of judges at UPEACE will determine the 10 Global Leadership Diploma Scholarships winners.
Interested individuals can apply for Guardian Group’s Global Leadership Diploma Scholarship Programme with the United Nations-established University for Peace (UPEACE) through its Centre for Executive Education, at ggscholarship.com.
