About the UTC SEA Scholarship Programme
The Trinidad and Tobago Unit Trust Corporation’s SEA Scholarship programme was established in 1996, to assist our youth who have the academic brilliance and potential, but find themselves at a disadvantage due to financially challenging circumstances.
The SEA Scholarship awardees receive $1,500 worth in vouchers annually over a seven-year period to purchase books and relevant school supplies. In 2008, the Scholarship Programme was expanded to tertiary level education. These students receive vouchers valued at $2,500 per year.
In order to provide additional support to the scholars, UTC implemented a “Strategies 4 Success,” workshop. It is designed to equip them with the necessary tools to manage personal and social challenges. It also brings health and wellness into focus and sensitizes scholars about their social responsibilities to better prepare them for leadership roles.
In 2012 the program was further extended to include a parent workshop. This is aimed at providing parents with the necessary guidance to successfully support their children throughout their secondary school lives.
