THE CONTINGENCY FUND to help needy students at the Barbados Community College (BCC) has almost dried up and the college wants help topping it up.
This has been revealed by deputy principal of the Howell’s Cross Road, St Michael campus, Dr Cheryl Weekes, who was speaking after the provision of two scholarships by the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA) to students in the BCC’s Hospitality Institute yesterday.
The scholarships are each worth $2 500 and are valid for 2017 to 2019.
