Fifty-two persons have been granted government scholarships to study abroad.
The Cabinet approved the recommendations of the BVI Scholarship Committee to award these scholarships when they met this month.
The government will fund the tuition for these 52 applicants for the period commencing Fall 2021 to Spring 2022.
“This government has restarted the Scholarships Abroad programme that was left dormant since Irma and Maria,” Premier Andrew Fahie boasted in a statement this week.
“This has allowed scores of our young people to further their tertiary education so that they can return to the BVI and strengthen our human capital and our Virgin Islands economy,” he said.
