Monroe College Awards Scholarships to Dominican Students to Study in St. Lucia
Monroe College is awarding scholarships to Dominica students to pursue studies in St. Lucia.
This was announced at the press conference on Wednesday December 5th, and is done in collaboration with the Roseau City Council.
Monroe College was founded in 1933 and has grown to over 7500 students coming from over 65 countries.
Vice President of the College, Dr. Alex Ifraim, says the scholarships are given as part of the Government of Dominica’s goal to have at least graduate per household by 2015.
He says education is very flexible with Monroe College.
They have decided to give 10 partial scholarships and 2 fulltime scholarships to the students.
Dr. Ifraim thanks the Ministry of Education and the City Council for working tirelessly in assisting Dominicans students to succeed.
This year a number of Dominican students graduated from Monroe College, and of the top 2 students, one came from Dominica with a 4.0 Grade Point Average.
The Vice President says the level of discipline from the Dominican students is encouraging for them, and this is why they like engaging students from here.
Sondra studied hospitality management at the college and says the experience was a great one.
