Together with RICE, Dr Steven King and Shelley Anne Noon, in the space of just over 6 weeks, we have gone from an idea to full realisation.
Today, at the airport, we wish these young academics bon voyage as they fly off, across the Atlantic Ocean, on the first step in a fantastic and exciting new chapter in their lives.
Opportunity is a precious thing and speaking to the students at the airport today, I know that they will make the most of it and return home with skills and knowledge that they can proudly put at the disposal of their fellow countrymen”.
As part of its 40th anniversary activities, BPP University, London, England, made available 50 full tuition scholarships in the fields of law and business to Saint Lucian students, through the British Caribbean Chamber of Commerce and RISE.
