The TDC Warren Tyson Memorial Scholarship program, which was named after the first Chairman, Mr. Warren C. Tyson, was started in 1981. The program is designed to assist and support students entering the Secondary Schools across St. Kitts-Nevis.
These young scholars are eligible to receive financial assistance throughout their secondary and tertiary school tenures. Students are also afforded the opportunity to work at TDC during their vacations, e.g., Easter, Summer, and Christmas, as well as, on Saturdays, which helps them to develop socially and professionally.
Another related benefit is the fact that these students also receive a stipend while at work. Accordingly, the financial and academic benefits plus the experience and maturity that is gleaned from this opportunity is invaluable.
Today, there are currently forty-seven (47) students on roll who are acquitting themselves quite well by using this balanced initiative for wholesome development.
With an accumulated investment of over EC$6 million Eastern Caribbean dollars, two hundred and forty (240) students have gone through this program and sought higher education at home and abroad. Some of these graduates have embarked on various careers in several disciplines including Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Education, Information Technology, Finance, and Entrepreneurship, among others.
Additionally, Warren Tyson Scholars are currently at University pursuing further studies, while others are full-time employees within the Company. Within the TDC Group, many also hold now Managerial and/or Supervisory positions in various departments including Edward Claxton, Belinda Claxton, Judith Matthew, Mary Browne, Natasha Joseph-Thompson, and Warren Moving.
