Dominicans dominate MSU Texas scholarship list

Midwestern State University will be home to 25 Good Neighbor Scholarship recipients for the upcoming 2023-2024 academic year.

The Good Neighbor Program is a tuition assistance program for students from nations in the Western Hemisphere that encourages students to pursue and complete their higher education in the state of Texas.  Only 10 students in the entire state from each eligible country are selected each year. It is a scholarship based on service, involvement, and academics here at MSU Texas which makes it very competitive as many students fit the criteria.

Every year MSU Texas receives recipients predominantly from Caribbean countries in the OECS. This year nine countries represent MSU Texas for the Good Neighbor Program with Dominica for the first time in three years being the largest group of recipients.  It is remarkable that in the state of Texas, six students from The Commonwealth of Dominica were recipients of this scholarship out of the 10 allotted spots in the entire state of Texas. The six students are:

  • Zebadiah Charles
  • Derwan OBrien
  • Theron Honore
  • Abigail Matthew
  • Vincent Peters
  • Tiarra Georges
