The Tryall Fund, dedicated to providing educational opportunities to promising students in Jamaica, proudly announces the successful conclusion of its 2023 scholarship program.
The organization's devoted committee of 26 individuals worked tirelessly to assess 337 applications and award 264 scholarships to deserving students.
The Tryall Fund's unwavering commitment to empowering Jamaicans with access to quality education has once again made a tremendous difference in their lives.
The Tryall Fund's scholarships, though partial, play a vital role in nurturing the aspirations of talented students across the nation. This year, 60% of the recipients were returning applicants who have previously benefited from the program, attesting to its profound and lasting impact on their educational journeys.
With a budget of $300,000, the Tryall Fund efficiently allocated the funds to cover the cost of scholarships while reserving a small portion for the upcoming scholarship ceremony and honorariums. The ceremony, a significant highlight for both recipients and supporters, will take place on 3rd August at 1 PM at the Tryall Club Great House.
One outstanding scholar stands at the forefront of this year's recipients, Narissa Nesbitt, whose dedication to the mental health field promises to bring about positive change in the community. The Tryall Fund recognizes her exceptional potential and congratulates her on receiving the Sexton Scholar distinction.
The breakdown of scholarship recipients based on their educational pursuits is as follows:
High School: 38 awardees
Six Form: 16 awardees
Community College: 40 awardees
University: 151 awardees
Graduate Studies: 19 awardees
In a remarkable testament to the Tryall Fund's inclusive approach to education, 50 of this year's recipients are adults returning to school, seeking to further their skills and knowledge for a better future.
"We are incredibly proud of our scholarship recipients for their perseverance, dedication, and commitment to their education. The Tryall Fund firmly believes in the transformative power of education, and we are honored to play a part in shaping the lives of these talented individuals," said Carol Radtke, the President of the Tryall Fund.
The Tryall Fund extends its heartfelt gratitude to all the donors, supporters, and volunteers who made this year's scholarship program possible. Together, they are making a lasting impact on the lives of countless students and strengthening Jamaica's future.
