    Damn now they come with this a few years too late ? When I was in College different department faculty nominate me for it twice, but it was not available to me as an international student at the time.

    I really hope West Indians take advantage. Sometimes these things are there but they don't know at the right times.

    Why?

    from the title I thought it would be open to West Indians meaning ALL....
