CUC Now Accepting Applications for University Scholarships 2022
Caribbean Utilities Company (CUC) has stated that it is currently accepting applications for University Scholarships for the year 2022.
According to the CUC, the CUC periodically awards electrical/mechanical engineering or technician scholarships for a four or two-year course leading to a degree in electrical/mechanical engineering or a degree in electrical or mechanical technology, tenable at a university or technology/technician institute in the Caribbean, USA or Canada.
CUC said that in the past, the company has also given several scholarships to employees in the financial services industry, who then went on to earn their degrees in finance, accounting and business administration.
Regarding sustainability, in 2021 CUC awarded its first scholarship in the field of sustainability to a young woman who will study urban sustainability. This degree program encourages the revitalization and transition of urban areas and towns/villages to improve livability, promote innovation, and reduce environmental impacts while maximizing economic and social co-benefits.
The CUC has stated that it recognizes that an ongoing human resources development program is essential to ensure the continued growth and success of the CUC.
CUC is therefore committed to providing employees with the necessary training to excel in their respective fields and to ensuring that they have the opportunity to take on positions of increasing responsibility within the organization.
Commenting on the success of the company’s scholarship program, Richard Hew, President and CEO, said:
CUC’s best investments are those made in the training and development of its people, especially the younger generation of Caymanians, who must be well prepared to assume responsibility for the long-term success of the business. We congratulate our scholarship recipients for seizing this opportunity and challenge and wish them every success in their studies.
The deadline for submitting applications for this year is Monday, February 28, 2022.
