JAMVAT 2016/2017 & Relocation of JAMVAT to NYS Head Office

The Jamaica Values and Attitudes (JAMVAT) programme provides assistance to tertiary students who qualify for admission but are financially challenged to cover their tuition cost. Each year there are reportedly 4,100 such students. Access to this programme provides the opportunity for students to participate in the development of the nation’s social capital through their contribution of 200 hours of public service.

In response, the government undertakes 30% of the student’s tuition cost, not exceeding $350,000 per annum. The objective of the programme is two-fold. JAMVAT promotes the participating students’ awareness of his/her civic responsibility while simultaneously encouraging the positive values and attitudes necessary for community development and nation building.

The deadline for applications is May 31, 2016.
