Initiatives for Scholarship & Education

Our mission is to provide post-secondary education opportunities to students who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.

The Deltec Initiatives for Scholarship and Education is a highly selective, full-tuition scholarship at the University of the Bahamas for four years.

It is a rare opportunity and it awards one college-bound student per year who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, a commitment to learning and community service, and success in the face of adversity from underprivileged families in the family islands of The Bahamas.
