Channel Island students get a shot at environmental scholarship


Channel Island postgraduate students, whose studies focus on the protection and improvement of island environments, are invited to apply for the Butterfield Post-Graduate Scholarship.

Butterfield annually offers one post-graduate student from the ten jurisdictions where it operates the chance to receive a scholarship worth $25,000 USD per year for up to four years.

Last year’s post-graduate scholarship recipient was Bermudian Chanah Bremar, who was enrolled in a Master of Science programme in Sustainable Energy at the University of Glasgow.

Richard Saunders, Managing Director, Channel Islands said: “Environmental conservation and development sits at the heart of Butterfield’s corporate social responsibility focus. The protection of the beautiful islands we call home is important to each and every one of us. In a post-Covid world, offshore jurisdictions have a fantastic opportunity to align long-term environmental and economic objectives.

"Chanah is a wonderful example of how the younger generation are leading the way toward positive environmental change.  We’re proud to support aspiring students like her as they follow their goals of helping create greener world.”

Students who are interested in applying for the Butterfield Post-Graduate scholarship can download an application form fromwww.butterfieldgroup.com/scholarships or e-mail scholarshipsbda@butterfieldgroup.com for more information.
