THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES
FACULTY OF THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
The Faculty of Science and Technology depends on you, our partners, to become FIRST and be the Region’s Go-to place for Science Knowledge, Research and Solutions.
You can support us through helping us to grow the FST Endowment Fund which is a sustainable mechanism for funding science programmes, scholarships, fellowships and infrastructure.
