The key objectives of this partnership are twofold: to empower deserving students through financial assistance and to promote academic excellence. First Citizens is committed to fostering a brighter future for Trinidad and Tobago, with a keen focus on advancing education and supporting aspiring scholars. Central to this initiative is the selection process for bursary recipients, guided by specific criteria. Prospective candidates must be citizens of Trinidad and Tobago, possess a GPA score of 2.5 and above, and be enrolled in studies related to Renewable Energy programs. The criteria ensure that bursaries are awarded to individuals who demonstrate both academic merit and a desire to contribute to the sustainable energy sector.
