One of the most significant single grants to The University of Guyana, negotiated over the last 11 months with the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC). The UG team included Deputy Vice-Chancellor Paloma Mohamed and Dean of the Faculty of Technology Elena Trim.
The GGMC is a long standing partner of The University of Guyana’s Faculty of Technology and more particularly, the Geology department to which the GGMC has granted significant sums in the past; and the Faculty for Earth and Environmental Sciences.
The value of the grant for 2017-2018 was negotiated upwards to one hundred million Guyana dollars along a specific spending and reporting protocol. The grant will provide the Faculty of Technology with much needed equipment for its geology laboratories and with envelopes earmarked for curriculum development, training, outreach and field research.
