CUPECOY–For more than 14 years, American University of the Caribbean (AUC) School of Medicine has awarded scholarships to support students who wish to attend University of St Martin (USM).

At AUC’s Celebration of Academic Excellence held on Friday February 22, the most recent recipients of these scholarships to USM were announced. Recipients are Glenda Louise Destine, Keiren Franklyn, Sonia Salmon-Lindsay, Peta-Gay Samuels, Allison Stanford, Audra Hyman, Beverly Orr-Harrison, Jo-Anne Schet, and Ahyofeh Lewis-Williams.

USM President Carmona Baez and Dean of Academics Rolinda Carter were present at the ceremony to congratulate the scholars.

In addition to providing scholarships to Sint Maarten residents who wish to attend medical school, the scholarships to USM continue to show the strong commitment AUC has to St. Maarten, USM said on Thursday. “We are thankful to AUC for their partnership and dedication in fostering a strong educational community in St. Maarten, encouraging a strong collaboration between students of our two universities, and supporting our students financially,” Carter said.

“While AUC is an international medical school, we’re also a proud member of St. Maarten’s higher education community,” Associate Dean of Academic Affairs for AUC Dr. Colin Michie said. “As we recognise AUC’s students for their achievements, we’re honoured to announce scholarships to USM for deserving residents of St. Maarten to help them pursue their career goals.”

Students wishing to apply to the AUC USM Scholar programme this year have until May 31, 2019 to do so. Application forms are now available at the USM Student Service Center.
