The TCI Bar Council invites applications for the annual TCI Bar Association Bursary Grant (“the Bursary Grant”). The Bursary Grant is a monetary award offered to students who are Turks and Caicos Islanders enrolled in full time legal education at tertiary level. The student’s programme of study must either lead to a qualifying law degree permitting the student to further enroll onto a vocational law programme or the student must be enrolled on such vocational programme leading to a qualification under section 5 (1) (a) i-iii of the Legal Profession Ordinance. Eligible students must confirm their intention to return to the Turks and Caicos Islands to pursue their legal career.
The Bursary Grant can either be applied to a student’s tuition or accommodation cost and is paid directly to the student’s university (or course provider) or their housing agent or landlord.
The precise amount of each Bursary Grant will be determined during the consideration of an application, however the maximum award of any one application is capped at US$2,500,00.
The deadline for applications is August 15th 2023.
