On Monday, 27th May 2024, the Foundation launched a special ‘International Medical’ scholarship supporting a student at All Saints University School of Medicine in Roseau, Dominica within the Caribbean. The award consists of virtual mentoring and a one-off funding amount. The first winner of  TMBDLF scholarship 2024, International Medical Category is Miss Boluwatife Atanda.

“I am delighted to win ‘The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Scholarship’ under their first ‘International Medical’ category while also acting as a Caribbean Ambassador for my University (All Saints University School of Medicine) and Dominica. Diversity plays an important role in today’s workplace and I am looking forward to playing my part as a next generation diversity leader within the medical sector while receiving the much needed support for mentoring and funding to help with my studies and career aspirations. It would be wonderful to get work experience at a UK based hospital,”  said Boluwatife A. Atanda., AMSA Chapter President, at All Saint’s University School of Medicine, Roseau Dominica.

“We are so pleased that ‘The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation‘ has continued to expand its global reach and positive impact to include the Caribbean island of Dominica where my mother was born. ‘The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Scholarship’ program under the ‘International Medical’ category will help support our next generation of diversity leaders within the medical sector providing a link between the UK and the other countries,” said Prof Miranda K. Brawn, Founder and President, The Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation.

“The excitement and joy among the medical students at the ‘All Saints University – School of Medicine’ in Roseau, Dominica during my special visit in May 2024 makes our Charity’s work for the past 8.5 years worthwhile! It was a pleasure to meet the University’s Dean and the students. We are also creating positive relations between the Caribbean and the UK within the medical sector and offering the students amazing networking opportunities to source their own work experience in the UK alongside the virtual mentoring with UK leaders and funding award,” Miranda continued.

“I am looking forward to meeting the other winners during my next visit to the Caribbean. A big congratulations to our first international scholarship winner Miss Boluwatife A. Atanda who has already made a positive impact with her leadership skills. I cannot wait to see Bolu’s growth on TMBDLF’s scholarship program and beyond,” said Miranda.
