Through our Caribbean High School Scholarship Program, we welcomed 6 new Scholars. The announcement was made during the graduation ceremony of the St. Ann's Bay Primary School. Each student was awarded scholarship funds in the amount of $150 USD towards their High School Tuition and Fees. Congratulations to (in picture above from left) Brian, Shaheem, Chrishauna, Aaylia, Issabelle, and Josiah. The high schools represented by this class are Ferncourt, Ocho Rios, St. Hilda's Diocesan, and Westwood High Schools.

The KDF Caribbean High School Scholarship Program was launched in 2022 and provides support through academic scholarships and mentorship, for high performing Primary School students who need assistance to get to and complete High School.

The program is currently open to graduating St. Ann's Bay Primary School students who are planning to attend High School in the academic year following their graduation.
