Fine arts student Hailey Barbosa has been selected as the recipient of this year’s Bermuda Society of the Arts Bursary Award.

The $5,000 bursary will help Ms Barbosa as she seeks her Masters degree at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, UK.

A BSOA spokeswoman said Ms Barbosa intends to earn a teaching degree and then return to Bermuda to help educate and inspire young people.

The spokeswoman said: “The challenges of the pandemic changed the landscape of the Bursary selection process.

“Some seven aspiring artists applied for the bursary by submitting portfolios of their work.

“The high quality of the submissions made for a difficult task in deciding who would receive the final award.”

The candidates were shortlisted by members of the BSOA’s bursary committee, and all finalists will be given the opportunity to have a free show of their work at the BSOA.

The $5,000 bursary, awarded annually by the BSOA, is designed to provide financial aid to a Bermudian student interested in furthering their post-secondary education in fine arts or design.
