Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, in addressing the nation at the Military Parade to mark the 41st Anniversary of Independence, announced that Education officials here have recommended 58 top performing CAPE  candidates for national scholarships, exhibitions and bursaries. This number surpasses the 50 who were recommended last year. In accepting the recommendation, the Prime Minister said that there will be sixteen full scholarships each for five years; eleven exhibitions each also for five years; and thirty-one bursaries, each for three years. Additionally, some 1000 plus students who attained the prescribed standards at CSEC, CAPE and Associate degrees levels, will each receive a $500 reward.  Instructions, according to the Prime Minister, have been given to have these payments made soonest. And as for the promised tablets, Dr. Gonsalves disclosed that with the arrival of another 14,000 eight-inch Samsun Tablets on Amerijet on Wednesday, to add to the already 3,000 units in stock, distribution was set to begin last Thursday to students at the SVG Community College, Secondary Schools and Grade 6 students at the primary level. A further 12,000 units of a more generic model will be ordered and made available to Grade 5 and below in primary schools. Students already into tertiary level studies supported by economically disadvantaged student loans have also been accorded some ease, with a waiver of interest for the period Sept 01, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2021. Moreover, the interest on economically disadvantaged student loans from the academic year 2021 to 2022, interest on new and existing student loans, including those with interest arrears, will be reduced to six per cent from 8%.
