"I want to thank you for sponsoring this scholarship and express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for being chosen as this year's recipient. My chances of success has increased significantly since the financial burden placed on my parents to grant me a higher education will be greatly reduced. 

This scholarship named in honour of Mr. Joseph Pereira, who saw the need to help students in pursuing their education, and I hope that through my continuing hard work and commitment I will make both my parents and Mr. Pereira proud upon the completion of this period of study in Banking and Finance.

Thanks again for investment in the University of the West Indies, Mona and future students, like myself."
