Iannah Caines has been awarded the 2023 Deloitte Scholarship, which offers up to $30,000 per year for a period of either two or three years.

The annual scholarship is awarded to a Bermudian, BOTC, or PRC Holder pursuing an undergraduate degree in all degree disciplines with particular focus in business, accounting, financial services, and actuarial science, who is interested in joining Deloitte’s audit, advisory or actuarial teams after graduation.

Ms Caines said she was extremely humbled to have been selected as the recipient, recognising her potential and ongoing commitment to her studies.

She said: “I eagerly accept this excellent opportunity to broaden my knowledge of accountancy and related services.”

The Deloitte Scholarship Committee said that after interviewing a fantastic set of applicants, the winner was chosen because of her exceptional academic accomplishments, commitment to her future studies, and desire to become an accountant.

Ms Caines will graduate from Bermuda College with a major in associates of arts, business administration, and begin her first year of study aimed at a BSc in accounting and finance at the University of Exeter, in the UK, in September.

With the support of Deloitte Bermuda, she will pursue her ACCA designation as a postgraduate.

As the scholarship recipient, Ms Caines will also join Deloitte as a summer intern and will take part in the DEEP (Deloitte Exclusive Experience Programme) as an audit and assurance intern.

During the ten-week summer programme, she will gain first-hand experience in accounting and advisory, learn from like-minded professionals, and contribute to project deliverables for Deloitte Bermuda clients.

Sierra Cabral, Deloitte senior manager, congratulated the winner, noting: “She demonstrated academic strength, leadership, and involvement in extracurricular activities with an overall commitment to her educational journey through a successful interview.

“The annual Deloitte scholarship not only helps students financially but is also the first step in developing a career within their chosen field, providing hands-on learning and mentoring.

“We applaud her achievements to date and wish her continued success as she pursues her dreams.”

Apart from the scholarship and the DEEP, Deloitte offers a variety of career options for students, the firm said.

They include The Deloitte Internship Programme and the Deloitte Graduate Programme.
