 RE: SVGAM Bursary Information

 Dear Candidate,

 Our Bursary program was organized to assist nationals of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in covering the cost of education at the CEGEP/College and University level. The Association has allocated the sum of $1000.00, which will be awarded as two $500.00 bursaries to two successful applicants in memory of Alfonso Theodore Roberts and Noel Hughes Conway King. To be eligible for our bursaries, applicants must be Vincentian by birth, parentage or naturalization. Children of Vincentian nationals born in Quebec but attending College/University in another province will also be eligible for the bursary. The Association reserves the right to request proof of Vincentian citizenship.

 Please find attached a copy of the SVGAM application. The application consists of three (3) pages. Please complete the entire application. The Bursary Committee would hold all information submitted in strict confidence.

 Criteria: The Bursaries will be awarded on the following basis: academic achievement, demonstrated community service, personal financial need, and enrollment at an accredited CEGEP or University in the Province of Quebec.

 Deadline: All applications must be delivered by Sunday, March 3rd 2019.
