As part of the Sports Unit's strategy to develop teams that are able to excel in both local and international competitions, The UWI, Mona grants scholarships of tuition and/or accommodation to qualified athletes. In addition to a full training programme athletes will also benefit from a meal plan which should ensure that their nutritional needs are better managed.
Scholarships valued at three millions dollars ($3m) were granted to eleven (11) football and eight (8) track and field athletes for the 2008-2009 academic year. This was the first time UWI offered scholarships. Nine of those athletes were new students who were chosen through a rigorous selection process which involved collaboration with coaches from various high schools. This was done to ensure that the student athletes selected have a passion for sports coupled with academic aptitude.
The UWI Mona is now accepting applications for scholarships from eligible students.
