Hon. Louise Bennett-Coverley Memorial Scholarship
The Hon. Louise Bennett-Coverley Memorial Scholarship is awarded primarily to deserving students of the Performing or Language Arts, in honor of Jamaica’s late Cultural Ambassador, the Hon. Louise Bennett-Coverley, OJ, OBE, D. Litt., to ensure that her legacy will be continued throughout future generations.
Since its inception in 2006, Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 -$2,500 have been awarded to students of the Edna Manley College (Jamaica) and the Broward College (USA) and to date, $25,000 (21 scholarships ) has been disbursed.
The Scholarships are funded primarily from generous donations made at the annual LB-C Reading Festivals and as Miss Lou would say –“Every Mickle Meck a Muckle” / “One-One Coco full basket”. Your generous contributions will be greatly appreciated and ensure that these students get the help they need, in achieving their goals. Checks are made out to the Louise Bennett-Coverley (LB-C) Heritage Council.
