Mirrors hosting online sessions about scholarships
Senior school students aiming to enter higher education can learn more about how to fund their ambitions through a series of online sessions.
The series — Finding Funds for College — will give information on loan and scholarship opportunities available in Bermuda.
The event has been organised by the Mirrors programme. Each session will feature guest speakers including scholarship recipients, lending agencies and some of Bermuda’s largest scholarship providers.
Sandra Dill, Mirrors PeerForward manager, said: “Finances should not be the main barrier for not going to college.
“Parents, guardians and students are invited to register for the weekly Zoom sessions. Each session will feature guest speakers including scholarship recipients, lending agencies and some of Bermuda’s largest scholarship providers.”
Kimberley Jackson, Mirrors programme manager, added: “We are hosting these sessions because we want to see more public school students attending college and applying for the many loans and scholarships that are available in our community.”
Topics being covered in the sessions will include funding for university, vocation and trades, and internships. Scholarship awarders will also share what they look for in a candidate including “must have” criteria versus “nice-to-have”.
Scholarship recipients and their families will share their experiences and offer tips about the application processes.
The weekly seminars start tomorrow from 6pm via Zoom. They will be interactive with a live Q&A format. To register, call Mirrors on 294 9291 or e-mail email@example.com.
