Scholarships Granted

The UCC has given over $800,000 in financial aid to students:

The Universidad Central del Caribe (UCC) is committed to giving support to its students so that their dream of becoming health professionals can come true. With its stated objective of awarding scholarships and stipends to students in all academic programs, the UCC has specialized resources that identify external sources of funds. Through the proactive identification of federal funds, as well as the noble gesture of philanthropists who have lent their support to our fundraising activities, we have been able to achieve the awarding of scholarships to students of Medicine, Medical Imaging, Biomedical Sciences, and Substance Abuse Counseling.

For the recently commenced academic year 2013-2014, we have awarded a grand total of  $768,213  in student scholarships. This amount comes from various sources and initiatives, including the following:

  • Federal Work Study Program annual funds -$75,000
  • Institutional matching funds – $100,000
  • Fundraising initiatives from the Institutional Development and Alumni Office – $111,000
  • Stipends and payment of enrollment registration fees to students in the Biomedical Sciences Program – $430,496
  • Governmental and military scholarships – $73,735 (preliminary)

In each academic year, there has been an increase in the total amount of scholarships awarded in all of the programs.

The UCC greatly appreciates everyone who has contributed to these efforts and calls on all its constituents to continue providing support to ongoing initiatives that benefit our institution’s reason for being: the Students
