PM Foundation Provides $2.5 Million To Assist UWI Students


Ninety-four students, who had unpaid fees during their final semester at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, have received financial assistance through the Prime Minister’s Positive Jamaica Foundation to clear their balances, enabling them to graduate.

The details were disclosed by Principal of UWI Mona, Professor Dale Webber during the recent ‘Let’s Connect’ virtual town hall with Ambassador to the United States, Audrey Marks.

He noted that there have been cases where students were unable to complete their studies because of outstanding fees.

He acknowledged the support provided by the Prime Minister as one that “comes to the rescue,” of students facing financial challenges.
