WEDNESDAY, FEB. 22: Marsh is combing an internship with its latest college scholarship.

On Monday, Marsh announced it will sponsor a two-year university scholarship worth $15,000 per year to be administered by The Bermuda Foundation for Insurance Studies (BFIS).

While Marsh has donated annually to BFIS since its inception in 1996, this newest scholarship includes a summer employment position for the recipient through which the student will gain valuable hands-on insurance industry experience.

It is available to students who plan to pursue a career in the insurance industry and who major in insurance, risk management, actuarial science, mathematics, finance, economics, accounting, corporate law, or computer science.

The scholarship will be awarded to a Bermudian student who exhibits exceptional scholastic aptitude and maintains a 3.0 GPA or above. For more information and to apply, students may visit www.bfis.bm.
