Fifty-nine students were named beneficiaries of Head-Start scholarships and grants at the Victoria Mutual (VM) Foundation's 2018 Scholarship Awards Presentation at Knustford Court Hotel in St Andrew on Thursday, August 28.
Now in its 33rd year, the programme continues to reward scholastic achievement in students who save with Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS), whether at the primary, secondary or tertiary level.
For tertiary students hoping to purse graduate studies, the candidate must be in his or her final year of undergraduate studies and demonstrate distinguished academic performance, involvement in extra-curricular activities, leadership qualities, financial need, as well as a willingness to be interviewed. One such scholarship, the VMBS Master Plan Head Start Scholarship valued $160,000, was awarded.
