DBJ provides scholarships for CASE students
Allister Gardener accepts a laptop and printer from Trisann Crosbie, marketing manager at the Development Bank of Jamaica.

IN the 2022/23 academic year, the Development Bank of Jamaica provided two scholarships under the bank's AGRIBIZ Programme to two second to fourth year, full-time undergraduate students — one female, the other male — enrolled in the BTech Food Systems Management or BSc Agricultural Education programmes at the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE) in Passley Gardens, Portland.

Each scholarship, which is valued at $500,000 per year, covers tuition and other costs, and comes with a laptop and printer.

To qualify for the scholarships students must, among other things:

•Be Jamaican citizens

•Have a grade point average of at least 3.0

•Be full-time undergraduate students currently enrolled at CASE in year 2, 3 or 4

•Demonstrate financial need; and

•Provide proof (transcripts) of academic progress.

CASE holds administrative responsibility for the programme and has already selected the two beneficiaries for 2022/23.

They are:

•Ashley Morgan, who is pursuing a BTech (Foods) degree; and

• Allister Gardener, also doing a degree in BTech (Foods).

Morgan is a graduate of Ferncourt High School in St Ann with nine CSEC subjects and communication studies at the CAPE level; while Gardener attended Dinthill Technical High School in St Catherine, and graduated with eight CSEC subjects.

Ashley Morgan accepts a laptop and printer from Paul A Chin, manager of investor relationships at the Development Bank of Jamaica..
