Leahnae selected as EY 2021 Bermuda scholarship recipient

Leahnae Morton-Richardson has been selected to receive the 2021 EY Bermuda Gil Tucker Scholarship.

EY said the scholarship award is valued at up to $30,000 per year for a maximum of five years until the recipient has completed the minimum educational requirements to qualify as a certified public accountant.

The firm said the scholarship provides students, who have shown academic excellence and display EY’s core values, the opportunity to gain higher education and build careers in the professional services industry.

The award also includes a summer internship to gain practical experience and an offer of full-time employment at EY Bermuda Ltd upon successful completion of the university programme.

Ms Morton-Richardson, who recently completed studies at Bermuda High School, is to attend Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia this autumn to pursue an undergraduate degree in accounting.

She said: “When I learnt that I was the recipient of the EY scholarship this year I felt immense gratitude and excitement.

“This scholarship presents so many opportunities to grow and develop, while positively impacting the local community.

“I feel honoured to have such an amazing opportunity.”

Craig Redcliffe, EY Bermuda partner and regional insurance leader, said: “The attraction and retention of top talent is a top priority for EY.

“Leahnae’s dedication and commitment to her personal and professional goals along with her excellent academics, tremendous work ethic, and personable and compassionate demeanour made her the ideal candidate for our scholarship.

“We are honoured to support Leahnae as she embarks on this next step of her journey and develops into a future leader within the firm and Bermuda community.”
