    Lightbulb Free college education for Trinidad & Tobago nationals

    Just FYI:

    An excerpt from page 18 of the TnT 2006 Budget Address presented Wednesday 28th September 2005 by the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.





    Regarding Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE)


    Mr. Speaker, the GATE Programme replaced the Dollar for Dollar Education Plan in September 2004. In my 2005 Budget Statement I indicated that we intended to provide free tertiary education in public institutions by the first of January, 2008. Since then, our revenue situation has improved considerably. I am therefore pleased to announce, Mr. Speaker, that with effect from January 1, 2006, all nationals of Trinidad and Tobago enrolled at public tertiary institutions, namely UWI, UTT, COSTAATT and other institutions where the Government sponsors students, will be eligible for free tuition, that is free public tertiary education.

    Wow! It sounds very good to hear that Trinidad and Tobago nationals get free education from their Government. These countries always succeed because they make their countries children a person with knowledge even if their parents or have money to education them or not. I feel very good and fresh after reading this article and thanks for sharing it.

    That is a great news! Those students should get professional help with essay writing for qualified study. I don't know where government get money for this but they should look at studyclerk.com and create a plan for future education.
