In 2015 the John Gray Memorial Fund Committee awarded grants to eleven students studying for their first degrees in colleges and universities overseas. Four of the students are past recipients of the grant; all are maintaining high GPA’s and must maintain a minimum of 3.00 in order to continue to receive funding. The other applicants are first time recipients whom the NCVO hopes to continue to support throughout their degree course.
The Grant is named in honour of the late Rev. John Rae Gray, a former NCVO Council and Executive Committee member, United Church Minister, and High School Principal. Funds are granted each year to young Caymanian students who wish to attend college or university but have insufficient funds to cover their living expenses. This is a “top up” fund and assistance is intended for expenses associated with pursuing a degree such as for books, accommodation or transportation and helps those who may have funding for tuition through government grants or other means but not for additional expenses. In 2015, a total of US $22,000 was distributed to applicants.
The students who were given funding are studying a wide range of courses including Biology, Music, Engineering, Special Education, Architecture and Animal Science.
