The Institute of Bermuda Architects has awarded Kevin Simmons with the Stanley G Kennedy scholarship for being an “outstanding student”.
The education committee was impressed with Mr Simmons' design portfolio, excellent grades and overall commitment to his studies, according to a statement.
Mr Simmons will be entering his second and final year of the Master of Architecture programme at Oxford Brookes University in Oxford, England, this autumn and will receive his $8,000 scholarship towards the school year.
