Maritime Scholarships: Lampit, Todd & Simmons

August 26, 2015

Concordia Maritime [Bermuda] Ltd. has provided three deserving students — Hannah Lampit, Denzel Todd and Elijah Simmons — with financial scholarships totalling $10,000.00.

Angelique Burgess, Chairperson of the Scholarship Committee said the scholarship programme began in 2011 after it was recognized that there were very few scholarships available for students who were interested in pursuing marine and maritime related careers.

“Bermuda has maintained a rich maritime history that dates back to the 1700’s and it is important that we continue to encourage students to gain qualifications in these areas. The Scholarship Committee would like to congratulate the students and wish them much success as they pursue the career aspirations,” Ms Burgess said.
