Applications Open: Public Service Bursary Award

April 5, 2018

The Bermuda Government is currently accepting applications for the 2018 Public Service Bursary Award Scheme.

A spokesperson said, “The Public Service Bursary Award Scheme awards up to 14 scholarships annually to Bermudians pursuing post-secondary academic qualifications in a discipline, which has been identified by Government Departments, that meets the future needs of the Department.

“This ensures a well-trained cadre of people to fill positions within the Public Service. The bursaries are valued at $10,000 per annum; not exceeding five years.

“Applications for the Bursaries can be downloaded online.

“The closing date for receipt of applications is April 27, 2018.

“The Bursaries are awarded by the Public Service Commission [PSC] to selected applicants enrolled in courses of study at a university, college or other training institution, in order to acquire professional or technical qualifications.

“The award is a contribution towards the student’s expenses and not expected to cover all costs. Other expenses, whether living expenses or tuition are the responsibility of the student.
