A mediathon hosted by the NCU Alumni Federation will be held on Sunday May 24 from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm EST (2:00 pm to 7:00 pm Jamaica time).
The mediathon, titled, A Gesture of Care, seeks to raise funds to provide scholarships for NCU Students who have been financially affected by COVID -19.
The event will be streamed live on NCU social media platforms and broadcast on NCU FM and TV.
In welcoming the mediathon, NCU President Dr Lincoln Edwards said it was a “worthwhile gesture as many students who have started their journey to achieve higher education are faced with financial challenges aggravated by the economic
fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
He commended the NCU Alumini Federation for spearheading this effort to establish the NCU COVID-19 Scholarship Fund.
