The minister of education has promised a full scholarship to applicants of the School of Pharmacy Programme at the Antigua State College based on certain conditions.
Michael Browne, who was speaking at the reopening ceremony of the School of Pharmacy Programme on Monday said that if everyone who qualifies for the programme graduates together, they will all be granted a full scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in the field.
“If as a cohort, all of you are able to graduate at the same time, supporting each other, we will guarantee you from the government’s perspective will ensure that you can almost move immediately towards a full scholarship tuition being paid to do a Master’s degree in pharmacy at a University either in the Caribbean, the United States or Canada.”
Minister Browne cited that one of the main reasons for the discontinuation of the programme was due to insufficient funding but assured the applicants that that will change.
