In addition to their 2022 scholarship recipients, Appleby 2021 scholarship recipients are also eligible to receive funds this year for their second year of study.
Education bursaries valued at $10,000 each, were awarded to Thomas Evans and Jada Rogers-Ingemann. The bursaries are for Bermudian students studying at university who intend to return to Bermuda to work.
Mr Evans will be attending Lancaster University in September, pursuing his bachelor of laws with politics degree.
Ms Rogers-Ingemann will be attending University of Kent in September, continuing her bachelor of laws (honours) degree.

Brad Adderley, Bermuda managing partner, said: “Appleby has provided scholarships and bursaries to Bermudian students for almost 50 years. We support the growth and development of Bermudian students interested in a career in law through these scholarships and bursaries, internship opportunities and later through our very successful pupillage programme.
“We congratulate Ryley, Maya, Thomas and Jada on their academic success and look forward to watching them fulfil their education and career aspirations.”
