JCPD offers scholarships for disabled people

JCPD offers scholarships for disabled people

KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) — The Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities (JCPD) is now inviting applications for its Margaret Moody Scholarship for persons with disabilities.

Applicants must be fully registered with the JCPD and enrolled in a diploma or degree programme at a tertiary institution. Volunteerism will also be considered during the selection process. 

Executive Director of the JCPD, Christine Hendricks, told JIS News that it has become increasingly challenging to select from the applicants because they are so good.
