“As former scholarship recipients working in International Business, we are uniquely positioned to act as ambassadors to positively influence perceptions about Bermudians in the international business arena and perceptions about International business within our communities, and, we must continue to tangibly demonstrate, by our contributions to the success of our companies, that it is a great investment for International companies to award scholarships to Bermudian students.”

In the past decade, the programme has given over $5 million to approximately 185 Bermudian students pursuing full undergraduate or post-graduate degrees in accredited colleges or universities abroad.
