Two Students receive Concordia Maritime (Bermuda) Ltd. scholarships
At a recent presentation, Concordia Maritime (Bermuda) Ltd. awarded scholarships to two well-deserving young Bermudians. The two awardees were Joshua Santucci-Smith and Erin Greig.
Joshua, a recent dual graduate of the Berkeley Institute and Bermuda College, received a three-year scholarship and has commenced his freshman year at the University of Tampa. He has a keen interest in the marine environment and will be studying for a Marine Science Biology degree. Joshua’s career ambition is to be a Marine Geneticist.
The second recipient to receive a scholarship was Erin Greig. For the past several years, Erin has been working on sail training vessels to gain the relevant sea time requirements to attend Warsash Maritime Academy’s Officer of the Watch unlimited certification programme. Erin recently finished working as a 4thOfficer on the Picton Castle sail training vessel at the beginning of September. Her career goal is to advance to the level of Master Mariner. Upon completion of her training and after gaining more experience, she plans to return to Bermuda and encourage other female Bermudians to enter the maritime industry.
The Concordia Maritime (Bermuda) Ltd. scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2011 with the primary goal of offering scholarships to students who are interested in marine or maritime related careers.
