The students were awarded the scholarships at the University of Belize Scholarship Award Ceremony at the Jaguar Auditorium, Central Campus, Belmopan on August 9. 

The awards to the students were in three categories: Barton, UB Alumni Association, and Student-Athlete Scholarships.

The Barton Scholarship fund provides full and partial scholarships to students enrolled in University of Belize’s Associate and Bachelor Degree programs. A total of 15 students were awarded this scholarship. Funding for this scholarship is provided through annual support from one of the University of Belize’s benefactors, Nick and Debbie Barton from the UK.

The University of Belize Alumni Association (UBAA) Scholarship is based on financial need, academic excellence and other conditions set by the UBAA and the Office of Student Affairs. This year’s recipient is Dyandra Marleney Williams a student pursuing an Associate Degree in Tourism Studies. President of the UB Alumni Association, Mr. Kerry Belisle, presented the scholarship to Ms. Williams.

The Student-Athlete Scholarship Program is funded by the University of Belize and it has been in existence for the past eight years. The scholarship is catered for students who excel in both academic and athletic skill. This year the University awarded 67 student-athletes (male and female) that range from Basketball, Football, Softball, Cycling and Canoeing.

Dean of Student of Affairs, Mr. William Neal, presented the scholarships to the students and congratulated them. The students also signed a contract where they assumed responsibilities including good behaviour, good grades, and community service.
Congratulations to all the awardees.
