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 242 in 2020.  In those 10 years we have given 886 scholarships totaling payments of $992,000.    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 had 314 qualified students who  submitted applications directly to the committee on-line. A committee of 18 Tryall Club members and supporters  reviewed all applications and selected the  successful recipients who were  announced  July 2020.
