Responding to a request from Prime Minister the Hon. Gaston Browne, the Government of Cuba said that it is adding seven additional scholarships to the nine granted for the 2023 Academic Year commencing in February.
Four scholarships are being provided to Cuban trained doctors to specialise along with one additional dentistry and two medical studies scholarships.
Prime Minister Browne commended the government of Cuba for supporting his government’s desire to provide the best possible education to its citizens from preschool to tertiary level.
Under the scholarship programme, doctors who were trained in Cuba are given the opportunity to specialise in their respective fields.
Doctors will be able to specialise in a wide range of areas to include Endocrinology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Cardiology and Nephrology.
New applicants are also being given the opportunity to pursue medical and dentistry studies.
The Prime Minister’s Scholarship Committee which manages the scholarships advised that the application period will remain open until December 21.
Application forms are available from the scholarship division in the Office of the Prime Minister.
