Testimonials

"Let me take this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to you and all the other members of the Scholarship Office who have supported me over the years. As this is my final semester with the University, I deem it appropriate at this time to extend sincere gratitude to the Scholarship Office / UCC Foundation which has been more than a rock to me since I started my journey in 2012 until this very moment when the finishing line is in view"

"A child with a burning desire for learning has no money; however, he has faith that can speak to the tallest mountain. Trusting in God and being determined is the key to success. I left Calabar High School with ten (10) CXC subjects but did not have any savings to continue school for a higher education. However, that did stop me from pursuing a higher education. One day, my friend and I were having a conversation where he told me about an inner-city leadership programme being offered by the JAMAICA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE / UNIVERSITY OF THE COMMONWEALTH CARIBBEAN (UCC)"
