Welcome to the Office of Student Financing

These pages are designed to provide you, students and prospective students with information regarding the programmes of financial assistance that are available at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies.

The UWI Administration is aware of the financial difficulties facing many students and with the help of various public-spirited organizations and individuals, the OSF has endeavored to provide funds which can be of assistance to students in situations of severe hardships and emergency.

The Office of Student Financing exists to assist registered students who are experiencing these situations and administer a number of programmes of financial assistance to ensure that student's needs can be met as much as is possible. The office began operations in 1997 as the successor to the Financial Assistance Committee. The upgrade to an office is the University's response to the increase in the demand from students to provide various forms of assistance. In addition, the Office provides various forms of financial assistance-related information to students which range from advising students on scholarships and bursaries to the provision of formal guidance sessions to students groups on financial planning and management while on Campus.

We have modified our site somewhat to update the information which we provide as well as to provide links to other sites which we think may be useful to you, as you consider financing your education. We hope these may prove useful to you.

In addition, we continue to entertain your queries and or comments both online, through snail mail, telephone/fax and by visits to our Office. You will find information on how to contact us below, as well as on individual pages in this site.
