JAMVAT is one of Royale College’s Approved and Available financing options. 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.
