Ross announces scholarships for Barbadian students
Barbadians looking to pursue a medical career may be eligible for significant help from Ross University School of Medicine. Today, the medical school announced the launch of need-based scholarships, covering the cost of medical school tuition and fees at Ross for two deserving Barbados students every semester, providing up to six scholarships a year.
“The Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training is very pleased to accept the award of the scholarships from Ross in the area of Medical Education. These scholarships signal the commencement of an important partnership between Ross and the ministry, and a journey which is anticipated to yield significant benefits for Barbados,” said Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training, Santia Bradshaw.
“Further, it augments the Government’s extensive investment in the development of human capital in Barbados. The ministry remains fully committed to providing access to medical education and training opportunities for Barbadians who attain the required standards and are deserving of support to assist them in achieving their career goals.”
Students can apply for the scholarships from today. To qualify, individuals must be citizens of Barbados and accepted to study at Ross. The admissions office will evaluate students’ applications, and the scholarships will cover all tuition costs and fees, so long as the recipients maintain satisfactory grades throughout their enrolment.
“Providing access to a quality medical education is at the core of RUSM’s mission,” said William F. Owen, Jr., Ross dean and chancellor. “We’re proud to offer these scholarships to Barbadian students to help them achieve their career aspirations as physicians.” (PR)
