“Tashae Trott is the top scholar of the Paget Parish Undergraduate Scholarship for 2016 and will receive $5,000 each year for the next three years. Tashae will commence her studies at Nottingham Trent University in the U.K. undertaking a BSc in Psychology.

“Rachel Lawrence will receive a continuance of her four-year award of $5,000 annually, which she won as the top scholar in 2013. Rachel is studying Veterinary Medicine at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

“Phoebe Barboza will also receive a continuance of her three-year award of $5,000 annually, which she won as the top scholar in 2015. Phoebe is studying Marine Zoology at Southampton University in the U.K.

“The Council supports Paget students who are studying at the Bermuda College. Unfortunately, there were no applicants for the Robert J. Wright Scholarship this year. The Scholarship is given over a two-year period for a maximum of $3,200.

“The Council’s Scholarship Selection Committee was very impressed by the candidates this year who are passionate for their chosen field of study, able to articulate their goals and doing very well academically. The Council is very proud to support a top rank of Paget university scholars.

“The Paget Parish Council is able to provide scholarships through the revenue it earns by managing the Red Hole Waterlot property. The Council has never received a Government grant.

“It is able to give beneficial provisions because of the generosity and foresight of the late Cornelius Jones family who gave the Red Hole property in trust so that every resident of Paget could have access to the waterfront.

“The Paget Council manages the property and receives rent revenue from the Red Hole dock berths and the boatyard. This was legislated in 1954 as the Paget Waterlot Act. Students are encouraged to apply in the Spring through www.BermudaScholarships.com or can contact the Council through www.PagetCouncil.com.

“The Paget Parish Council is a Government appointed body comprised of 12 members who are Paget residents and voluntarily serve the community for the benefit of all residents of Paget. The nine Parish Councils fall under the Ministry of Home Affairs, and follow the mandate as set out in the Parish Council Act 1971.”
