Society of Arts awards $5,000 bursary

Local student Ayo-Oluwa Salawu has been presented with the 2016 Bermuda Society of Arts Bursary Award worth $5,000.

The Bermudian is pursuing a joint degree programme — Beng (Hons) in Architecture and Environmental Engineering in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment, which is accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects at Niagara College in Canada.

Candidates for the award were short-listed by two members of the BSOA's bursary selection committee — former governing body member Catherine Hay and former co-president Dr Edwin Smith.

The bursary is awarded annually to provide financial aid to a local interested in furthering their post-secondary education in fine arts and/or design. The recipient should be registered at an accredited college or university for either undergraduate or post-graduate studies.

Bsao is the island's oldest arts organisation, now over 60 years, and it is hoped that, through sponsorship, the society will be able to increase the bursary in the future.

The gallery is located on the top floor of the City Hall and Arts Centre on Church Street,
