    “8. Be Bermudian”

    I wonder if the University are aware that this scholarship discriminates and bars children who were born on the island. I imagine that such a discriminatory practice hiding behind a flawed immigration act would be found deeply troubling and not something the University would want to be associated with.

    Born British Overseas Territories Citizens on this island need to know that this kind of discrimination is going to end.
