SAGE is proud to annouce that through support from our generous donors we have been able to provide two promising young Guyanese with scholarships to University of Guyana starting this school year.  Both Dylon King, from the Northwest Region and studying International Relations, and Louise MacCloud from Linden, and studying biololgy to become an orthopediologist, are off to a great start as freshmen at UG.

We were also able hold an orientation this summer where our new scholars met with our current scholars and UG staff for an introduction to life in at the university, including study tips and available resources.  We hope that this orientation is the begining of even more services for our scholars.  And thanks to your continued support we know it will become a reality!  Please see our attached photo from orientation 2012.

of Guyana, and as a SAGE scholarship recipient. SAGE applications for
2012 are out and we are looking forward to selecting our scholarship

Dear SAGE Supporter:

One month ago our second SAGE Scholar, Caleb Morris, entered the University of Guyana.  Due to Caleb’s high level of financial need, SAGE committed to provide not only his tuition, but also room, board, transportation, and other necessities.  Caleb’s story, which you can read in the attached newsletter, is representative of the students SAGE is committed to funding.

The attached SAGE Newsletter contains an introduction to the 2010 SAGE Scholar and an update from Patricee Douglas, the 2009 SAGE Scholar.  On behalf of the SAGE Board, Caleb, and Patricee, thank you!  We appreciate your support and hope you will consider donating again.  Follow the link below to view the full newsletter and hear more from Caleb and Patricee.

As our inaugural SAGE Scholar, Patricee Daniels, finishes up her first year at the University of Guyana, we look back on the excitement we had for her when she was starting her Biology program. Her dedication to her country radiated from her application when she wrote, "After I would have acquired my training in the area that I have selected, I want to be someone who is known for her dedication for and love for her country…someone who contributed to change in Guyana and the development of our lovely native land."

Now, we have received another batch of highly competitive applications and are energized again by the opportunity each applicant represents for Guyana. This year's applications come from several different regions of Guyana and include students who wish to study Medicine, Eco-tourism and several aspects of Business. Each candidate has shared with us their unique story and the commitment to their country that they have already begun to show. We certainly have some difficult decisions ahead!

Stay tuned here and to our website ( for updates about our organization and our scholars!
