The Caribbean Education Foundation discusses the reasons why Paul Bogle Scholarships are critical in Jamaica. CEF’s CEO, Attorney Nikiki Bogle explains, “Public High Schools in Jamaica are ‘not free’ and due to the associated costs attending High School, too many 11-year-old children are unable to attend or appear infrequently at best. 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 help themselves.”

The Caribbean Education Foundation maintains high standards for its scholarship recipients. As is evidenced from the high caliber of students who are awarded Paul Bogle Scholarships, CEF Scholars are among the best and brightest in Jamaica. In addition, they are attending some of the best High Schools in the country.

Once a “CEF Scholar”, Paul Bogle Scholarships are renewable each year of High School if the student meets the required criteria: Daily School Attendance, Good Grades: at least a “B” average, Good moral character and Financial need.
