Applications for the Sandals LEAP Scholarship program are now open to applicants until April 30. Students of Northern Caribbean University (NCU), the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech), and the University of the West Indies (UWI) have until next month to apply for one of three scholarships and/or one of six customised internships with Sandals Resorts International (SRI) under its Leadership, Excellence and Purpose (LEAP) programme.
The regional resort chain announced last week that the Sandals LEAP scholarship grants total $1 million. The scholarship will be awarded to one student per institution who is an active member of their university’s tourism action club and who have a minimum Grade Point Average of 3.0. The criteria also hold for the internships, which come with a monthly stipend and will run for three months.
Application deadline for the Sandals LEAP Scholarship Program is April 30 and for the internships program is April 14. SRI has also introduced an essay competition under LEAP.
