What is PALAS?

The Peace and Love Academic Scholarship (PALAS) program was established in December, 2010 after the brutal killing in Portmore, Jamaica of  young reggae artist, Vanessa Campbell. An initial scholarship program was created as the SSSJamz/Vanessa Campbell Academic Scholarship to assist high school students from her Alma mater, Bridgeport High School.

Vanessa Campbell  killed at 18 yrs old After an appeal by founder Rula Brown to listeners of his popular Internet radio shows; “Sultry Sunday Slow Jamz” (SSSJamz) and “Peace and Love Vibration Show” (PALVS) produced excellent responses. It was subsequently decided to extend the scholarship program to high school students currently residing in the Caribbean region.
