Introducing the Young Dreamers Scholarship

Turn your efforts into a Scholarship

The Young Dreamers Scholarship helps offset the cost of high school and it is open to all sixth graders in Jamaica.

Every year, the student that achieves the highest PEP score is selected to achieve the award. All it takes is effort and a drive to be the best you can be.

Dream Big to Achieve Big then Dream Bigger

Launching in 2020

This year is the inaugural year of the Scholarship. It is a new opportunity for a new decade.

The Scholarship is sponsored and developed by the FiwiRoots project with the assistance of Ms Demetha Barnett of Lower Buxton All Age School.

This year the Scholarship is being offered exclusively to the Lower Buxton All Age School, so that means someone from Lower Buxton will be the recipient of the award, which will be paid directly to the high school to which they are accepted. It will be used to help cover the cost of their fees and books. The winner will be featured at this website, on this page.

Next year, in 2021, and subsequent years, the program will be expanded to additional schools across the island.
