The ABIC Education Awards program is one of the largest and most broadly supported scholarship programs in Bermuda, highlighting the commitment of the International Business sector.

The program is intended to provide scholarships to Bermudian students who are pursuing higher education at accredited four-year colleges and universities. Supporting the careers of Bermuda students ensures the sustainability of international business in Bermuda.

The scholarship awards are based on a combination of the applicant’s financial need and academic ability. Undergraduate applications are invited from students in both the government and private sector schools as well as from students already enrolled in a degree program at an accredited college or university. Post graduate applications are also invited. Other criteria considered, include the applicant’s specific career focus, awareness of the role of international business in Bermuda, and the level of involvement in and commitment to the community. As indicated, award recipients must be Bermudian, have Bermudian status or a PRC.

This outstanding program is administered and relies heavily on volunteers so all of the contributions received are used for the scholarship awards. The largest corporate contributors to the program each year are designated with “Corporate Named Awards” in the name of the corporation. This creates a direct connection between the company providing the award and the student. Students are encouraged to obtain career guidance and advice from their corporate sponsors.

Currently, the undergraduate award to each recipient is $15,000 per year for a two-year period while the post graduate is valued at $20,000 for a one-year period. Specific requirements for the ABIC awards are indicated in the application process linked to this site.
