The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) held a briefing for the five new recipients on the TaiwanICDF Scholarship on August 4, and invited the President and Members of the Taiwan Alumni Association in St. Vincent and the Grenadines Gordon Shallow, Tasheka Haynes and Noretta John to share their experience of studying in Taiwan. Ambassador Weber Shih encouraged the recipients to study hard, explore the breathtaking beauty of Taiwan and enjoy the warmest hospitality offered by all walks of life in Taiwan. Taiwan would be their home away from home, he said.

The five new recipients are Rosmond Adams, Brontie Tucker, Tashana Providence, Clint Todd Lewis and Juanna Holder. Adams, Tucker, Providence and Lewis will pursue Masters’ programs in International Health, Tropical Agriculture and Environment Sustainable Development respectively, while Holder will immerse herself in the undergraduate program in International Health and Nursing Administration. They will travel to Taiwan in late August.

On June 29, eight other young Vincentians received Taiwanese Scholarships to study in Taiwan.
