Spanish Jamaican Foundation Scholarships and UWIDEF

Over the past 25 years, UWIDEF has provided financial assistance in the form of Jamaica Scholarships to the University for the Welfare of students of the Mona campus by covering an array of assistance including scholarships, scientific and academic research and development, including contributions to the UWI’s teaching hospital the UWI Hospital.

The 10-year-old SJF, meanwhile, has expanded its outreach in all areas, including increased support for Spanish Jamaican Foundation scholarships and bursaries valued at more than $3 million to students and student-teachers studying Spanish in educational institutions island wide. This is in addition to ongoing projects.

SJF General Manager Karen Donaldson congratulated UWIDEF for its consistent efforts to seek out ways of accessing assistance in the provision of scholarships to benefit students.

“The study of foreign languages opens doors to endless possibilities, and we are confident that the students selected will make full use of the opportunities being afforded them. Last year’s recipients have already shown proof not only of high academic standards and leadership qualities, but also in their capacity as SJF Youth Ambassadors for Spanish, have participated in SJF-supported community service projects including Read across Jamaica – In Spanish, and the Council of Voluntary Social Services’ (CVSS) Day of Care for the Homeless,” she said.
