Academic history was created when Government awarded a total of 55 Barbados Scholarships and Exhibitions to several students on Friday.

But even in the midst of increasingly tough economic times, Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw is not worried about the inflating costs associated with the awards as Government continues its commitment to education.

Bradshaw spoke to THE NATION on Friday following the announcement of the 23 scholarship and 32 exhibition winners.  

“The numbers, while they are increasing, I think it speaks to the fact that the students are working hard. They have something to work towards,” Bradshaw said.

“I anticipate that next year we may even see a greater increase as well. But I do believe that as a Government we are prepared to make allowances for the increases because we recognise the importance of education to development of the country as well,” she added. (AD)
