Green family give scholarships to 13 Bermudian students
A philanthropic family have announced scholarships for 13 Bermudian students in partnership with the Knowledge Quest educational charity.
The Green Family Scholarship Fund gives the awards on the basis of need and academic capability, with priority to those who demonstrate a commitment to their community.
Family spokesman Andrew Green said: “We passionately believe that education is key to success in life, whether it is social, financial or even just for the simple joy of learning, and we are proud to be able to support these young Bermudians in their endeavours.
“Each of these 13 students should be extremely proud – they have proven themselves not only intellectually capable but already demonstrated their community spirit and we know that with them, Bermuda’s future is bright.“
The scholarships offer between $5,000 and $10,000 a year for up to four years of postsecondary education.
