The scholarship is needs-based and can be used towards education and tuition costs at an accredited college or university abroad.
The Green Family Scholarship has been awarded to more than 100 students since its inception in 2007, and the family as committed more than $1 million in educational funding over that time.
Recipients study in various fields, including business, health sciences, hospitality, insurance and risk management.
The scholarship was established with assistance from Knowledge Quest, which has helped more than 140 Bermudian students attend college and university since 2001.

Andrew Green, on behalf of the Green family, said in a statement: “We believe that no Bermudian should have to turn down the chance for a better life because they do not have the opportunity to further their education.
“The scholarship that we created is to achieve this goal and we are proud to be able to contribute to the education and future of these hard-working students. We wish them the best of luck in their educational pursuits and we look forward to following their achievements over the next few years.”
