INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S CLUB OPENS SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
Monday 16th May 2011

Each year, the International Women’s Club of Antigua & Barbuda gives out approximately $40,000 in grants to women of Antiguan nationality who are pursuing tertiary educational goals in the fields of nursing, pharmacy, x-ray technician, education, and economic development.  Today, Scholarship Committee co-chairs Diane Camacho and Sue Sharp announced the beginning of the application period for 2011, with a deadline of Monday, 6 June, for completed applications.

The scholarships, based on academic excellence and need, are meant as a supplemental award for coursework pursued within the Caribbean region only. In the past, individual awards have ranged from $500 to $8,000 EC. Since 1998 the club has awarded 120 scholarships, totaling $371,800.

Funds should be used to assist in the cost of tuition or other costs associated with higher education, and are distributed directly to the institution or school involved. Applicants can receive a maximum of two awards in separate years.  Recipients are expected to return to Antigua upon completion of their studies and apply what they have learned toward the betterment of the nation.

Deadline for receipt of completed applications is Monday, 6 June, 2011. By then, applicants will need to secure and complete the IWC application form and submit it along with two academic letters of reference, a one-page typewritten essay, the last two official academic transcripts, the institution’s letter of acceptance including course fees, and a passport-sized photo.  The form, which includes a cover letter outlining the criteria, can be picked up at Goldsmitty’s on Redcliffe Quay, or by contacting Mrs. Susan Sharp (sharpe@candw.ag) or Mrs. Diane Camacho (camachod@candw.ag).
