what we do

The Stuart Duggan Memorial Scholarships

We are exceedingly proud to have been chosen to award and administer the Stuart Duggan Memorial Scholarship as a part of our ongoing scholarship program. This scholarship was awarded for the first time in June 2007 according to the criteria already established by Treasure Beach Foundation.

Like the other Treasure Beach Foundation scholarships, the Stuart Duggan Memorial Scholarship covers transportation, uniforms and shoes, books and school supplies, lunches and snacks, and other mandatory items.

Stuart Duggan moved from the U.K. to Treasure Beach and died an untimely death from a heart attack when he was only 40 years old. While in Treasure Beach, Stuart turned his hand to a multitude of tasks; but, Stuart is not remembered for what he did professionally; he is remembered for who he was as a human being.

 


Stuart made the world a better place. And, he certainly made Treasure Beach a better place.  He loved the people of Treasure Beach and they loved him. He worried that some children in Jamaica did not get the education they deserved because of lack of money.

The funding for this scholarship is made possible by donations from Stuart’s family and friends as a way to continue to honor and celebrate his life through the life-changing gift of education in the community he had come to call his home.

We have awarded two Stuart Duggan Memorial Scholarships—one for the 2007/08 school year and one for the 2008/09 school year.  As with the Treasure Beach Foundation Scholarships, these are provided for one-year periods.  If the scholarship recipients attain their established goals, then they will receive another scholarship for the following year of high school.
