THE MAKANDAL DAAGA SCHOLARSHIP IN LAW
This scholarship is named in honour of Makandal Daaga, liberator and social activist of Trinidad and Tobago, who spearheaded the ‘Black Power Movement’.
Daaga’s work focused on the central tenets of law, that is, equality, social justice and fairness. His advocacy and that of the several organisations he instituted, made significant impacts on areas that are of particular relevance to law and legal policy.
Accordingly, the scholarship is aimed at creating lawyers who will be meaningful change agents working towards promoting justice and an egalitarian society.
Suitable applicants must have a discernible record of advocating for positive social change in their communities, through concrete work on issues of justice, equality, or democracy, whether in an individual, NGO, governmental, or regional capacity.
Candidates may be of any age, gender, race or CARICOM nationality.
Simultaneously, applicants must also apply for admission to the University of the West Indies - Faculty of Law through http://sta.uwi.edu/admissions/index.asp . Only applications from persons who have satisfied the matriculation requirements of the UWI St. Augustine Campus will be considered.
Interested persons must complete the Online Application inclusive of the Online Essay (max. 350 words). The essay should describe your work and activism and should explain how earning a law degree will enhance this work.
