New Tertiary Tennis Scholarships to Jamaican Institutions
One of the most exciting new developments on the Jamaican tennis scene has been the establishment of two new tennis scholarships to local tertiary institutions. This means that Jamaican students can now vie to use their tennis skills and other positive attributes to further their education at home, whereas such opportunities were previously only available overseas.
The new tennis scholarships, which were launched in March 2006, are:
The Gore Development Limited/Tennis Jamaica Scholarship to the University of the West Indies (UWI), which covers tuition and expenses for four years of a degree course;
The Cable & Wireless/Tennis Jamaica Scholarship to the University of Technology (UTECH), which covers tuition and expenses for four years of a degree course.
