The Maples Foundation has donated US$25,000 to the United World Colleges Cayman Islands National Foundation.
Each year, UWC Cayman Islands provides full scholarships to students selected to attend one of 12 UWC colleges across the world. Since 1984, nearly 70 Caymanian students have participated in the two-year pre-university programme.
UWC Cayman Islands Vice Chair Aubry Bodden said, “Maples has been an integral part of the local UWC movement since 2006 and their annual donations have supported scholarships for over a dozen exceptional young Caymanians. Our recent alumni have all directly benefited from their long-standing commitment to this shared vision and we are so proud of their accomplishments and grateful to our sponsors for making their experiences possible.”
Maples Cayman Managing Partner Paul Lumsden said, “Maples has been a supporter of this programme for many years and are proud to stand behind such an important initiative that has afforded many students the opportunity of further education.”
