In addition to providing financial aid to students in need, this department aims to promote financial awareness and responsibility among the student population via programmes such as “Managing my Finances”. Scholarships and bursaries are provided for deserving students based on academic performance in A’ Level examinations or the B.Sc. Programmes. The bursaries can range from TT$2,000 to TT$15,000 and are sponsored by several companies from Industry, Professional Associations, Consultants, Manufacturers, Service Companies, Bankers and Utilities and UWI Alumni. Additionally, there are UWI Open Scholarships which are managed by the Office of the Board of Undergraduate Studies, Mona, Jamaica. The UWI Development and Endowment Fund also provides Bursaries each year based on financial need and academic performance. The UWI Campus Committee for Undergraduate Awards decides on the bursaries on an annual basis. The Adopt-A-Student Fund encourages staff members to make monthly contributions to help students. Any money donated is disbursed to students who are experiencing financial difficulty.
