The N.C.B. Foundation is committed to helping our nation as we navigate COVID-19 together. We will be providing up to J$25M in grants for Jamaicans who are now unemployed due to COVID-19. This will be done through our Level Up Grant Programme, in partnership with iCreate Institute, Northern Caribbean University (NCU) and Internet Income Jamaica Limited.

Application Deadline: May 20, 2020
We are no longer accepting applications.

These grants for short-term online courses allow us to stay true to our roots and core focus on education and our push towards enhancing digital literacy and adoption. At the same time, it creates a pathway for unemployed persons to resume earning income to support themselves and their families. This is critical as our attention turns to jump starting the economy and minimizing increases in poverty.
