Help the Abandoned Ex-Venezuelan Med Scholars Get Scholarships

This petition had 1,736 supporters

9 months ago, just 2 days before the General Elections, 22 aspiring medical students were returned to Saint Lucia from Venezuela.It was discovered that the Venezuelan institution we were attending was not listed in the World Directory of Medical School, and the degree that we would receive was not recognized by the World Health Organisation. The absence of the institution’s listing in the Directory means that the school could not be accredited, meaning that graduates would not be able to use the degree outside of Venezuela – not even in Saint Lucia.
Upon our return, both the former and current administrations pledged to intervene, and committed to reassigning all 22 of us to other, accredited medical courses of study. Unfortunately, as of yet the Government of Saint Lucia has not come through on their promise.
We students have gone through numerous difficulties, but all 22 want to push forward so that we can help our families and the country, once in possession of our degrees.
Help us get the Government to take action! It is scholarship season now, and we have waited much too long to be denied our chance at a university education for yet another year.
