ANNA Regina Secondary’s top Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) student, Kelly Sankar, has been awarded a full-tuition, pre-medical scholarship by the Texila American University (TAU).

According to a release issued by the university on Saturday, the scholarship is in keeping with its vision of positively impacting the local education sector.
At the CSEC 2021 exams, Sankar attained 16 Grade Ones and four Grade Twos.

During a recent interview with this publication, the teen described preparation for the exams an “intense” period, stating, “It was a rough path. Lots of sleepless nights; a lot of studying and a lot of preparation, but you could always make it through.”

The teen is an aspiring gynaecologist and she has applied to the TAU College of Medicine to pursue studies for the Doctor of Medicine programme.

According to the release, Founder and President Mr. Saju Bhaskar noted, “Texila has always been about diversity and inclusion and one way we can ensure that everyone has access to university is by offering financial support to those who may have unique personal circumstances.”

He further added, “We are proud to welcome Ms. Sankar to the TAU family and we must also commend the Ministry of Education for preparing students to excel in academia.”

According to Texila, the official handing over of the scholarship award will happen on November 15, 2021, at the university’s Providence Campus by the Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand.
