The UWI Raises Funds for Students
With assistance from the RBC Race for the Kids with The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus has been able to strengthen its First Year Experience programme, as well as offer more assistance to students in need through the Hardship Fund, and award scholarships to outstanding students.
The University of the West Indies conducts a First Year Experience Programme, where 2nd year students provide mentoring to 1st year students. The Scholarship Fund and the Hardship Fund may also be accessed to provide assistance to students who excel in their studies, or demonstrate a financial need in some way.
