Sandals Foundation hands out scholarshipsThe Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, recently hosted its annual Care for Kids scholarship award ceremony at Beaches Ocho Rios Resort & Golf Club. Forty-two students, who demonstrated financial need in the Caribbean, took home scholarships worth a total of US $100,000, which will be distributed over a five-year period and now enables them to complete a high school level education. Since 2009, the Sandals Foundation has awarded scholarships under the Care for Kids program to high school students in Jamaica, Turks & Caicos, Antigua, The Bahamas and Saint Lucia. The grants cover the costs of tuition, uniforms, books and annual checkups.
