College and University Scholarship
ESI is in discussion with several colleges and universities in Jamaica in order to identify high-performing tertiary students with the highest financial need whom ESI can sponsor for the duration of their studies. In addition to the annual scholarship, these students will be mentored throughout their studies in preparation for applying for college admission throughout the Caribbean, United States, and the world.
