The Arthur Lewis Award for Indigenous People of the OECS and Belize

Accessible, quality education has been a priority of The University of the West Indies for many years
The Cave Hill Campus is dedicated to serving the region and continues to implement new academic and social initiatives, aimed at widening further access to higher education for citizens.  The Arthur Lewis Award for Indigenous Peoples is founded on institutional committment to the democratisation of opportunity, and seeks to promote academic excellence within the indigenous community of the region.

The Award was conceptualised with the aim of achieving equity in access to higher education, so that no person is denied educational opportunities or benefits for reasons unrelated to ability.  The aim is to correct the situations of disadvantage in higher education experienced by persons from ethnic minorities in the region.  The Caribbean's indigenous population is one such minority  and is also referred to as the "First Peoples" whose historical struggle against colonial dispossesion and slavery has shaped the region's cultural identity in profound ways.  This award is available to the Kalinagos of Dominica, the Mayans and Garifunas of Belize and the Garifunas of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
