Challenge

Many times, Antiguan/Barbudan students attend school in the United States for undergraduate and graduate studies. Although some (not all) receive assistance from the Antiguan/Barbudan government, it is often not enough to help with some costs such as books, transportation or food.

Solution

This project will help offset some of the costs of furthering education such as costs of books, transportation or food. Thus, making the journey of obtaining a degree a little more comfortable.

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, this project may encourage more and more Antiguan/Barbudan students to further their education. In return, the Antiguan/Barbudan population will have more trained and qualified workers, not only improving the twin island state but also the Caribbean region and the world at large.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
