Foundation launches scholarship survey


Centennial Bermuda Foundation has partnered with a website that highlights local scholarships to help to find opportunities for improvement.

A spokeswoman for the Foundation said that Bermudascholarships.com lists more than 250 scholarships every year, but it is hoped that the review will help to maximise the benefit they provide.

All organisations that offer post-secondary scholarships are invited to complete a 15-minute survey that will gather data on scholarships currently available, including for certification, undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and vocational studies.

Vivien Carter, Centennial director of programmes, said: “We encourage all scholarship providers to participate in this survey as it will give us all more information about the scholarship landscape.

“Our thanks to those who have already responded. We plan to share a high-level report with all stakeholders once the data is collected.”

Centennial has said it will also carry out a strategic assessment of the scholarships it offers to reconsider how they fit within those available in the wider community.

Allison Towlson, Centennial managing director, added: “We are working to ensure equitable access and opportunity for all Bermudian post-secondary students.

“Three years ago Centennial refocused the eligibility criteria for its scholarships on financial needs as the first criteria. This year’s strategic assessment is the next step in that work.”

The survey has already been e-mailed to known scholarship providers, and the foundation has said it hopes to receive responses from at least 100 of the recipients.

The survey is set to close today, May 30, and is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/J6XFM9V.
