Ms Hayes, who has graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from McGill University, also Canada, later graduated from Queen Mary, University of London with a law degree and will now read for her legal practice certificate and Master’s degree in law at the University of Law in London.
Ms Looby, a law researcher for the Bermuda Supreme Court, has been further her legal education through distance learning, will use her share of the money to help pay for a Bachelor of Laws degree at Kaplan Holborn College in London.
