Scholarship puts wind in student’s sails
A boat designer has won a $4,000 scholarship from an international tanker shipping firm to help fund his studies in Britain.
Hereward Dill, who is enrolled in the yacht and powercraft design course at Solent University, Southampton, was awarded the 2019 Concordia Maritime scholarship.
Mr Dill graduated from the Landing School in Maine with an associate’s degree in marine systems in May.
A spokeswoman for Concordia Maritime said it also continued to support previous winners of the scholarship.
Lamar Samuels, last year’s winner, will given more funds to continue his studies at South Shields Marine School in the UK, where he will start the phase three part of the course in September.
In addition, Alexander Cook, the 2017 recipient, will receive support as he continues an archaeology degree at Cardiff University in Wales.
Angelique Burgess, general manager of Concordia Maritime, said: “We are very proud of our scholarship recipients who are very focused on pursuing their educational goals.
“Concordia Maritime (Bermuda) Limited have been providing scholarship awards up to $10,000 since 2011 to deserving students.
“Many of the past recipients have graduated and are employed either locally or overseas in the maritime industry which is a testament to the benefits of the scholarship programme.”
