Welcome to the website of the Errol and Nita Barrow Educational Trust.
The Trust was established in 1989 in memory of two great Barbadians, Errol and Nita Barrow – see the tool bar above for more details of the establishment and history of the Trust.
Given their passionate belief in education as a tool of empowering all, the primary purpose of the Trust is to raise funds and make financial awards that will enable Barbadians and Commonwealth Caribbean citizens to pursue a course of study that will further the development of Barbados and the Caribbean.
Since the first awards were made in 1991, over 100 students have received awards in traditional and non-traditional subjects from engineering and forensic science to culinary studies and tourism management. We encourage you to reflect on how developing your own skills can support the development of Barbados and the Caribbean and apply for an enabling grant. Read the award guidelines (see tool bar above), download the application form and e-mail or post in back to us before June 15th to be considered for an award for the coming academic year.
Professor Avinash Persaud (Chairman), Mr. David Barrow, Dr. Jeannine Comma, Ms. Roma Cozier, Ms. Norma Holder, Mr. Clarrie Layne, Dr. Basil Springer, Dr. Ashwell Thomas and Ms. Shelley Williams.
