By BBN Staff: Restore Belize and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) have partnered to award 12 Belizean students with 2-year academic scholarships.
The scholarships are worth US $25,200. This was made possible through the UNDP’s ‘Enabling gender-responsive disaster recovery, climate and environment resilience in the Caribbean project.
The project aimed to assist young students whose family circumstances were compromised by the economic recession exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The students received scholarship packages that includes tuition, uniforms, books and tutoring expenses.
The project is supported by the UK and Canadian government with the repurposing of US $1.1 million to support the alleviation of social and economic shocks associated with the pandemic.
