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 gain work experience 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 are gleaned from this opportunity are invaluable. Since its inception, approximately 257 students have gone through the program. Today, some of these Warren Tyson Scholars are at University pursuing further studies; while some are now full time employees within the Company, many who hold Managerial and/or Supervisory positions across the Group. Others have gone on to become successful professionals, in other fields of endeavour, such as Lawyers, Surgeons, Entrepreneurs, Teachers, Accountants and even Prime Minister.
