Paul Bogle Scholarships are awarded to qualified and talented children who graduated from Primary Schools and passed their exams to attend High School but are in financial need, and could be in danger nonattendance due to lack of financial resources.  The Scholarship pays:  school fees, text books, school supplies, uniforms, shoes, transportation and lunch for the 2011-2012 school year.  Scholarships are renewable each year of if the student meets the required criteria of daily attendance, solid academics (at least a “B” Average) and good character.

The scholarship recipients satisfied the Paul Bogle Scholarship strict requirements: high academics (at least a 3.0 grade point average); passed Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT); evidence of financial need; and solid production of four prescribed essays.

The Caribbean Education Foundation’s CEO, Attorney Nikiki Bogle discusses the reasons why Paul Bogle Scholarships are critical in Jamaica, “Public High Schools in Jamaica are ‘not free’ and due to the high costs of attending High School, too many young children are unable to attend or appear sporadically.  CEF’s goal is to help to provide meaningful access to High School education for children in financial need, in order that youth may acquire essential tools to change their own lives for the better.”  The Caribbean Education Foundation champions individual empowerment by enabling young people to access important foundational tools which will provide them with meaningful opportunities in the world.
