The Pembroke Hamilton Club Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2022 scholarship programme.

To be eligible for scholarships, applicants must be an active member of PHC’s various programmes for at least four consecutive years, hold Bermudian status and be a permanent resident of the island.

They must also be pursuing a programme of higher learning at an approved institution of higher education, including the Bermuda College, be able to present clearly identified goals and career paths, and possess a minimum grade point average of 2.5.

At the discretion of the committee, scholarships will be granted each year up to a maximum of $10,000 to the recipients to be used towards covering the cost of tuition, living expenses and literature.

Applications are to be submitted online at www.bermudascholarships.com prior to the April 30 deadline.

The PHC Foundation was established in 2007 with the goal of assisting worthy and qualified applicants with their educational financial needs, creating well-rounded servants to the community in the long term.

“It is the Foundation’s vision to be a positive influence in the development of the youth in Bermuda, our future leaders, by supporting them as they excel on the athletic field, in the classroom, and most importantly in society,” O’Shandah Ming, the PHC Foundation secretary, commented.

Since its inception, the registered charity has granted scholarships to 101 recipients for a total of nearly $550,000. Up to 12 recipients each year have been awarded financial assistance.

Funding for the scholarship programme is secured from corporate and personal donations, with several donors having supported the PHC Foundation since its inception.

The organisation is headed up by president Mark Simons and also includes vice-president Raymon Glasford, treasurer Marquel Waldron, secretary Ming and additional members Kevin Warner, Robert Richardson and Tawana Fox.

Despite trying economic circumstances brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the foundation managed to achieve its mandate of securing corporate and private donations for last year’s seven awardees, who received a share of $24,000 in scholarship grants.
