The Bermuda Government is currently accepting applications for the 2022 Public Service Bursary Award Scheme, with the deadline for applications on April 29.

A Government spokesperson said, “The Public Service Bursary Award Scheme provides funding to Bermudians pursuing post-secondary academic qualifications in a discipline identified to meet future needs of Government Departments. This ensures a well-trained cadre of people to fill positions within the public service. The bursaries are valued at $20,000 per annum; not exceeding five years.

“Bursaries are awarded by the Public Service Commission [PSC] to selected applicants enrolled in courses of study at a university, college, or other training institution, in order to acquire professional or technical qualifications. The award is a contribution towards the student’s expenses and not expected to cover all costs. Other expenses, whether living expenses or tuition are the responsibility of the student.
