THE DEBATE ABOUT PAYMENT of tuition fees at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus rages on, but at least one student has been freed from that burden. Chemistry student Shaneanoh Carter is the latest recipient of the $15 000 Rotary West Scholarship, which is supported by Sandy Lane and Diamonds International. The presentation was made at the Ministry of Education recently. Carter, who admitted to struggling to pay her fees previously, will not have to worry about the cost of books, clothing, transportation, guild fees or any other costs associated with her studies for the next three years. The former student of The St Michael School said she was honoured to have been chosen. “Everybody is wondering how they’re going to get through and to make it, so I’m fortunate to have been awarded this,” the soft-spoken 20-year-old Carter said. Chairman of the scholarship committee Gregory Hazard said the contenders made for a competitive field, but he was confident they had made the right choice in Carter. Director of youth services at Rotary West, Winfield King, said they might have to look at increasing the amount of money awarded to scholars if tuition fees were introduced from September. (YB)
