About the William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund
The William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to the memory of William Marcus Natta, former army sargeant and accounts clerk.
The Scholarship Fund provides financial and educational assistance to students from low-income families who display academic excellence, exhibit sound moral character, and a strong sense of community service. The founding committee pioneered the Scholarship Fund at Tucker-Clarke Primary School (2010) and extended the scholarship to students of the Irishtown Primary School in 2016. The Board of Trustees hopes to expand the Scholarship Fund to other primary schools on St. Kitts and Nevis as the Scholarship Fund grows.
The William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund awards a total of two scholarships each academic year to two student recipients, one male and one female, selected from grades five (5) or six (6), in each eligible school. Scholarship awards range from EC $500 to EC $2,000.
The William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund provides financial and educational assistance to primary school students through yearly scholarships. The Scholarship Fund is committed to helping mold our youths into sound citizens and people of character and integrity by encouraging them to strive for academic and civic excellence.
