Grenadian and other Caribbean students in the growing regional cohort continue to excel  academically. More than 50 students from the sub-region were placed on the Spring ‘24 Dean’s List. 

“The university sees the Caribbean as its primary area for building a successful international  undergraduate programme,” University Provost Mark Mossman said. He noted the positive reports  from the professors on their outstanding dedication to academics. 

Grenadian students typically begin their studies online before completing them on campus in the  United States. WIU Scholarships are based on local college or Caribbean Advanced Proficiency  Examination (CAPE) achievement and cover a high percentage of tuition for strong students. Top  students can compete for the International Presidential Scholarship, which provides a full tuition  scholarship.
