The Paget Parish Council announced the recipients of its Paget Parish Undergraduate Scholarship and Bursary Awards as Chloe Smith, Tashae Trott, and Phoebe Barboza.

“The Council has provided approximately $341,000 in scholarships to Paget university students over the past 16 years. Scholarships are based on academic excellence and financial need and the Bermudian students must have been residents of Paget for a minimum of five years,” a spokesperson said.

“Chloe Smith is the top winner of the Paget Parish Undergraduate Scholarship for 2017 and will receive $5,000 each year for the next four years. Chloe will commence her studies at Western University in Canada, undertaking a Bachelors of Engineering.

“Tashae Trott will receive a continuance of her three-year award of $5,000 annually, which she won as the top scholar in 2016. Tashae is studying Psychology at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom.

PPC Scholarship Awards Bermuda Aug 2017

“The Council also supports Paget students who are studying at the Bermuda College. Unfortunately, no Paget student applied for the Robert J. Wright Scholarship for study specifically at the Bermuda College. The Scholarship is awarded over a two-year period of study for a maximum of $3,200.

“The Council’s Scholarship Selection Committee was very impressed with the candidates this year who showed passion for their chosen field of study, were able to articulate their goals, and who are doing very well academically. The Council is very proud to support our 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, but has been able to assist these students and other parish residents because of the generosity and foresight of the late Mr. Olney and Mrs. Cornelia Jones, 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 rental income from the Red Hole dock berths and the boatyard. Students may apply for the scholarships in the Spring through www.BermudaScholarships.com or can contact the Council through www.PagetCouncil.com .

“The Paget Parish Council is a Government appointment 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.”
