Many organizations have been offering scholarships to selected students for the upcoming school year. Today, Courts Belize Limited awarded thirteen four-year scholarships to well deserving students. The students were selected from sixty applications. Grisel Carballo, Public Relations Officer for Unicomer Belize, told Love News that for the past fifteen years Courts Dare to Dream Scholarship Programme has been assisting students.
Grisel Carballo, Public Relations Officer, Unicomer Belize: “Our scholarship covers 80% of books, tuition, and fees and it’s also for the four years. So when they come in it’s from first form until fourth form. Our Courts Dare to Dream Scholarship program focuses on students that are coming out of primary school going into highschool so therefore all of our scholarship students go from four years covering the entire school year. Courts prides itself into giving back in many different areas. By having Courts Dare to Dream scholarship program is just one area of where our company prides itself in giving back.”
The students were elated and it was a proud moment for them and their families. Love News spoke with three of the recipients, Elsworth Sutherland, Helarie Sub and Hannah Bevans.
