A total of twelve St Lucian students will be offered places at Midwestern State University when representatives hold an open day here next week.
The event coincided with the 20th anniversary of Midwestern State University Caribbean Students Organization which is being observed this month. The celebration will recognize the almost 1200 students who have enrolled at the university since the program began.
In recognition of the anniversary MWSU officials will be in Castries for an open seminar for prospective undergraduate and post graduate students on Tuesday 18 February at the Cultural Development Foundation Conference Room at Barnard’s Hill. The meeting takes place at 4:30 pm.
All undergraduates receive a scholarship and competitive waiver that allows them to pay less than the state resident rate in tuition. Students earn additional scholarships through academic excellence and compete for the Good Neighbor Scholarship which covers tuition for the final year.
Post grads can earn scholarships and assistantships up to the full cost of their education based on individual academic records.
Midwestern State University was the first institution to recognize the credits from all the local OECS colleges and paved the way for other institutions to do the same. The Caribbean Recruitment Program is a collaborative effort sanctioned by the Government of St Lucia.
