    IWC (International Women’s Club) in Antigua just paid out $41,000 to seven deserving scholarship recipients.    The annual scholarship benefits female applicants and often supplements other funding enabling collegiate students to further or complete their education.   The scholarships have been in effect since 1992 (Club dates back to 1986) and while there are generally speaking, no restrictions with respect to the areas of study, the IWC has cut funding to areas believed to be over saturated and tries to be responsive to the needs of the country in deciding on which applicants to fund.  

    Seven applicants were rewarded this year and the areas of study included a masters in counseling, an MBA in public sector management, a bachelor of science in public health, a masters in banking and finance, a certificate of competence in education testing and medical transcription.  

    The awards will be made at a special luncheon set for July 8th at PJ’s in Coolidge where Minister of Education, Dr. Jacqui Quinn-Leandro is slated to be the featured speaker. The scholarship is funded by IWC fund raisers such as this year’s golf tournament slated for July.
