|Scores of parents and students alike headed to the examination section of the Ministry of Education, Science Technology and Innovation yesterday, to get their hands on the bursary forms for the University of the West Indies.
These forms, which have a deadline of August 12th, were in great demand, as people collected for themselves or for family or friends. They came by van, taxi, bus and personal vehicle, in an effort to collect and hand in these precious documents by the requisite time.
In this current economic climate, where it seems that the cost of everything is on the rise, parents and students know and value the importance of finding some help to ease the pressure of tertiary fees, especially with September soon on the horizon. As noted by one student, Shaquille Kellman, he found out about the forms from his aunt and was determined to make it to the Ministry to collect one.
