August 16, 2016

BELCO announced the recipients of its 2016 Scholarship Program, with 34 high school, college and university students presented with scholarships and education awards ranging from $750 to $25,000.

Denton Williams, BELCO’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “Supporting the development of Bermuda’s young people is one of the most impactful ways we can support our community.

“49 students pursuing further education in STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] related disciplines, as well as business/commerce and arts, applied for the available education awards and scholarships.

“It was a huge challenge for the Selection Committee to make the final selections; however the final recipients have shown, without a doubt, their commitment to not only to their own education and future career goals, but to returning home and contributing to their own island home.

“Bermuda needs their skill sets and the expertise they are working to develop. Congratulations to the 2016 Award Recipients and we wish them all the best as they return to school.”
