Four students have been awarded scholarships by the Paget Parish Council.

Phoebe Barboza will receive $5,000 annually for the next three years to support her marine zoology studies at the University of Southampton, in England, while cybersecurity student Zi-né Franklin was presented with $2,500 for this academic year to assist her at the New England Institute of Technology.

Rachel Lawrence will receive a continuance of her four-year award of $5,000 annually to cover her studies at the University of Edinburgh, where she is studying veterinary medicine.

Ky-Asia Scott-Fishenden, who is studying culinary arts at Bermuda College, has been named the winner of the Robert J Wright Scholarship. Her award will be submitted to a special account at Bermuda College and, over the two-year period of her course, she will be able to draw a maximum of $3,200.

A council spokeswoman said the scholarship committee had been “very impressed” by all four candidates and their passion for their chosen fields.

The Paget Parish Council provides scholarships to students from the parish through the revenue it earns by managing the Red Hole Waterlot property, donated by the Cornelius Jones family to ensure that every resident of Paget could have access to the waterfront.

The council manages the property and receives rent from the Red Hole dock berths and the boatyard.
