Dear SXM_IMBRACE (2)Students,
The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth Affairs and Sports, through the Division of Study Financing, commissioned the local consulting firm IMBRACE  to conduct a research study to determine the labor market-, and societal needs for short-, medium-, and long-term, as it pertains to the issuance of study financing.

The goal of this study is to produce a  2017 Study Financing Priority List of studies, qualifications and professions which are aligned with  St. Maarten’s economic- and educational strategic plans.


Considering the vested interests of YOU, the students with “PRO-tential”, we would like to provide YOU with this opportunity to share YOUR voice and vision. We hereby, kindly request your prompt feedback with the completion of the Student Survey which is following below.
