MWSU Caribbean Program Celebrates 20 Years

Midwestern State University’s Caribbean Students Organization celebrated its 20th anniversary this month recognizing the almost 1200 students who have enrolled at the university since the program began.

In recognition of the anniversary MWSU officials will be in Dominica for an open seminar for prospective undergraduate and post graduate students on February 19 at 4:30 pm at the Public Service Union on Valley Road, Roseau.

All undergraduates receive a scholarship and competitive waiver that allows them to pay less than the state resident rate in tuition. Students earn additional scholarships through academic excellence and compete for the Good Neighbor Scholarship which covers tuition for the final year.

Post grads can earn scholarships and assistantships up to the full cost of their education based on individual academic records.

Eight new students from Dominica arrived at the university this semester and fifteen additional ones will be accepted for this August.

Midwestern State University was the first institution to recognize the credits from all the local OECS colleges and paved the way for other institutions to do the same. The Caribbean Recruitment Program is a collaborative effort sanctioned by the Government of Dominica.
