The Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) advises the public it is now accepting applications from tertiary students for grants from the BGLC Education Fund for Semester Two (2), commencing January 2015.

The Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) established its Education Fund as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility Programme in August 2014, as it prepared to move its offices to Hagley Park Road in Kingston.

The aim of the Fund is to contribute to the welfare of children and young adults through education and to ultimately assist in their upliftment. To this end, assistance will be offered, in the first instance, to tertiary level students in the Hagley Park Road area, in the vicinity of the new headquarters of the BGLC.

However, it is hoped to eventually expand the reach and scope of the Fund by engaging the support of the clients of the Commission. Members of the Education Fund Steering Committee include educators, representatives of a church in the community, and the business community.

Applicants must be tertiary level students in the Hagley Park Road area, in the vicinity of the new headquarters of BGLC. Students who received grants for Semester One (1) in September 2014 will not be eligible for Semester Two funds.

Application forms for the Fund can be downloaded from the BGLC Website and submitted to the BGLC Office at 78cef Hagley Park Road, Kingston 10, at the corner of Keesing Avenue, just south of The Domes.  The deadline for submitting applications complete with all requested documents, is January 28, 2015.
