Nine Students Awarded BHB/BHCT Scholarships

July 11, 2018

Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Trust [BHCT] and Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] today [July 11] announced a second $350,000 donation to support scholarships and staff training at BHB, and also announced the winners of the nine BHB scholarships in 2018 funded by BHCT and a scholarship funded by GlaxoSmithKline that BHB administers.

In 2017, the BHCT made the same donation, which allowed BHB to introduce new scholarships for mental health nursing, finance and, in memory of BHB nurse, Dashunte Furbert, scholarships for students studying nursing at the Bermuda College. The remainder of the donation supported training for over 140 BHB staff.

Venetta Symonds, Chief Executive Officer, BHB comments: “Thank you BHCT donors for your support of our scholarship and training programme. This generous donation allows us to maintain critical scholarships and staff training, as BHB seeks to improve and maintain its services and facilities.

    Congratulations to all recipients, well done for your academic achievements. However, forty thousand per year for two years for the university of Northampton is absurd. That is surely a misprint. UK does not charge fees like the US and furthermore, why would that award not be broken down to allow more students to have access to funding. If Government is paying to subsidize a Bermuda College programme why not invest in more students being able to attend that programme by reducing a number of these scholarships, so there is more funding available for students who just don’t have access to funds. It does not seem equitable.
