ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA – The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture, and the Associate Vice President of Global Studies at Western Illinois University, Randy Glean Ph.D., will facilitate an open session with prospective students at the Grenada Trade Centre on June 9, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Representatives from Southeast Missouri State University; Northwest Missouri State University; St. George’s University; State University of New York-Brockport and the University of Guelph-Ontario will participate in the open session, as will stakeholders from the banking sector.

The open session will be the main event of the June 8 to 10 visit by Dr. Glean and representatives from the various universities.

They will offer various types of scholarships for qualified undergraduates, up to full tuition, for top students.

Post graduate students interested in Master’s degrees are advised to research the institutions prior and be fully informed on offerings. Highly qualified students with top grades and research experience or potential, who are fully informed and invested in their area of interest, may qualify for opportunities that may include tuition and stipend.

Some institutions offer options for co-operative education that include work and study. All institutions offer the opportunity for on-campus work on a competitive basis. Online studies or a combination of online to on-campus study is an additional option.

This venture is part of a joint initiative being undertaken by the Minister for Education, Youth, Sports, and Culture Hon. David Andrew and Dr. Glean, who has assisted in finding institutions willing to offer scholarships and assistantships to Grenadian students and which recognise and accept the credentials and credits from the T.A. Marryshow Community College.

This Ministry encourages all prospective students to make full use of the opportunity to obtain information for educational advancement.
