PATH Scholarship Comes at Right Time for Chedukia Langley, A Medical Student in Jamaica
Twenty-Two year-old Chedukia Langley, who started UWI in 2014, was unable to meet her full tuition cost of $3.5 million per annum for her Bachelor of Medicine.
But thanks to a $1-million scholarship from the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), she will be able to meet her financial obligations.
In an interview with JIS News, Langley said,
“I was at the brink of dropping out, because, although I had gotten scholarships, I still owed the university, and I did not know how I was going to pay ”
The former Glenmuir High School student, who was born in St. Elizabeth, told JIS News that becoming a medical doctor is a dream she has had from a young age. She said,
“I wanted to become a doctor from I was very small. I always said I wanted to go to Glenmuir High School and become a doctor. Medicine is a rewarding career, and you get to help people where you can restore someone’s health”
