UWI scholarships awarded

Education Minister Dame Jennifer Smith this morning announced the first recipients of the Bermuda University of the West Indies scholarships.

Tyka Edness, Amne Osseyran-Foggo, Asha Rattery and Latonae Smith were each honoured with the scholarships, valued at 80 percent the cost of tuition

While a memorandum of understanding between Bermuda and the University also offers one scholarship for a graduate student, there was only one applicant this year, who decided to attend a different school.

Dame Jennifer said: “This year, scholarships have been awarded to four young Bermudians who have demonstrated hard work and commitment to their studies.

“Each scholarship is for a programme of study that is of great use to the people and economy of Bermuda.”

Ms Osseyran-Foggo, who is currently enrolled at the university’s Mona Campus in Jamaica studying for a double bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery, said she felt privileged to be in the programme, which she described as “challenging.”
