Scholarship Program

Education for Those in Need

Shanrell Creary, candidate for a Masters of Education, University of West Indies

In 2019 I was awarded a Tryall Fund Scholarship and this was the first time in my entire existence , that I had gone to school not worried about how I was going to afford tuition or books. To say that I am grateful for the opportunity that this scholarship has afforded me, would be the understatement of the century. There are no words in the English vocabulary which can express my gratitude, but I will start with Thank You

The Scholarship initiative is intended to help students, who attend school in Jamaica, realize their potential and to positively impact their communities. Since its reorganization in 2010, recipients increased from 17 to 180 in 2019.  In those 9 years we have given 644 scholarships totaling payments of $722,000.    Each student has a Tryall employee sponsor who helps with tracking and accountability.


Beginning in 2019 we were fortunate to award the Wilson and Jean Tirey Sexton Scholarship to an outstanding scholar attending University. This will be awarded on an annual basis.


In 2020 we have 300 qualified students who have submitted applications directly to the committee on-line. A committee of 20 Tryall Club members and supporters will review all applications and select the recipients to be announced by August 2020.
