Why Support uwi?


Contribute to the development of skilled professionals

UWI graduates can be found in almost every profession and sector of Caribbean society. There is growing demand for skilled professionals, as well as research, professional training, and advisory and consultancy services with a Caribbean focus. UWI remains the University of First Choice in the provision of such services. Your investment in UWI is an investment in up-and-coming talent that may become your future employees.


Educate our Caribbean students

The cost of one year’s tuition at UWI is significantly less expensive than the average cost of comparable college education overseas. Yet for many in the Caribbean, this is still high-priced. The overwhelming majority of our students are from lower and working classes with limited ability to pay even a modest tuition fee. As costs steadily increase and government support decreases, your much needed financial support can help a first generation university student from a home without means to compose his/her educational goals.


Empower students and Support Research

Strategic partnerships empower UWI’s community of students, faculty and researchers to more effectively pursue academic and research opportunities and so provide the knowledge products and services that benefit the national, regional and international community.


Support research that will alleviate challenges in the Caribbean

At UWI, education goes beyond the classroom’s “ABCs” to address real challenges facing the Caribbean and the world. UWI is committed to finding ways to advance economic prosperity across our small island states, alleviate poverty, and sustain a rich and diverse culture peculiar to our part of the world, even while preserving the delicate eco-systems of our islands and the integrity of the Caribbean sea, your funding will help to support our research in vital areas.
