For a more detailed account of the experience of a Jamaican scholarship recipient, I've linked the article that brought this scholarship to my attention: Video testimonials can also be found on NSYP Co-Founder, Ray Jackson's YouTube Channel:

NSYP Inc. has a FaceBook page is also active and NSYP Co-Founder, Ray Jackson regular posts may provide some added insight regarding this scholarship.

With 4 Jamaican awardees to date the hope is that this program can prove beneficial to many more.

Good luck!
