2019 Gordon Gill Architectural Scholarship Winners
"In 2019, I was selected as the awardee for the inaugural Jamaica USA Chamber of Commerce’s “Gordon Gill Architectural Scholarship” for Students of Architecture at the University of Technology, Jamaica. This scholarship was a welcome blessing as it significantly reduced the financial burden on my parents, which made it easier for me to complete my bachelor’s degree at the Caribbean School of Architecture (CSA) at the University of Technology, Jamaica. This allowed me to find more time and energy to focus on the work at hand, as the majority of my tuition fee was accounted for.
I am pleased to say that I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies with first-class honours, among several other awards, namely, the CSA Honour Student Award, the Dean’s List Award, the Lascelles Dixon and Associates Award and the Best Academic Performance Award for Year 4 (2020/21). I am proud that I was able to maintain the high standard of work I set for myself, even during the disruptions in our learning process as a result of the pandemic. As I transition into work, I remain committed to maintaining the high standard I set for myself during my studies. My family and I are immensely grateful for the opportunity that was presented to us. Once again, thank you." - Rose Somie
