Our ultimate goal is to continue to provide the training and a strong educational framework that will allow graduates with disabilities to enter the working world.
FIVE STUDENTS WITH disabilities will be awarded bursaries starting in September, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Principal of The UWI, Mona Campus Professor Archibald McDonald said. He was speaking at the recent Regional Disability Studies Conference staged by The UWI Centre for Disability Studies (CDS).
The bursaries each valued at $50,000 will be awarded every academic year through the CDS to students who have maintained a B average in their studies.
“This bursary is yet another major University initiative geared at providing friendly and accommodating educational services to all students with disabilities,” McDonald told the conference.
“Our ultimate goal is to continue to provide the training and a strong educational framework that will allow graduates with disabilities to enter the working world as skilled, competent trailblazers (who will) make continuous contributions to the welfare of the community,” he added..
