Jamvat Overview

The Jamaica Values and Attitudes Project for Tertairy Students (JAMVAT) .

The Jamaica Values and Attitudes Project for Tertiary Students, JAMVAT, is an effort to assist students, who qualify for admission, but are unable to finance their tertiary education. There are reportedly 4,100 such students each year. The programme provides the opportunity for students to participate in the development of the nation's social capital through their contribution of 200 hours of public service. In response, the government undertakes 30% of the student's tuition cost.

The objective of the programme is two fold. It aims to ensure that all qualified Jamaican students will continue to have access to tertiary education irrespective of their social status. The programme also aims to develop and strengthen the participating students' sense of civic responsibility while it simultaneously encourages positive values and attitudes towards community development and nation building.
