The 16th Social Security Board Scholarship Award Ceremony was held on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at the George Price Center in Belmopan. At the ceremony, 43 students were scholarship recipients. Of the 43, 30 students were awarded high school scholarships, 12 sixth form scholarships, and 1 vocational.

The students were chosen based on academic performance as well as economic need. The scholarship program relies on the contributions of employers and employees. The Board’s objective is to contribute to the socioeconomic development of Belize and, according to Dr. Colin Young, C.E.O., S.S.B., the best way to do so is by investing in the educational opportunities of young people in the country.
