List of Scholarships

Please note: Scholarship funds are intended for the costs of tuition, room and board, and travel to and from the place of study. Scholarships are tenable at accredited institutions of higher education approved by Bank of Bermuda Foundation and are granted at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee. Further details on eligibility requirements can be found at www.bermudascholarships.com

In keeping with the Foundation’s focus on equity and access, all scholarship applicants must now demonstrate financial need by completing the family Statement of Means form. Financial need is based on a family’s ability to pay for post-secondary education and the Foundation is guided by statistical data on household incomes in Bermuda. Evidence of strong academics and potential for success are also key requirements for eligibility.

Lines Scholarship and two Chairman’s Awards are now $20,000 for one year, for students entering the third or fourth year of post-secondary education.

History / Background

The Bank of Bermuda Limited began offering scholarships to Bermudian students in the mid-1970’s. The scholarships were traditionally named in honour of those who held positions of leadership within the Bank, and were directed to students based on academic accomplishments, as well as involvement in extra-curricular activities.  Bank of Bermuda Foundation assumed responsibility for administering the scholarship programme in 2000. Over the years, the Foundation has created new scholarships, many with a requirement that students demonstrate financial need in addition to strong academic credentials.
