The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (“Butterfield” or “the Bank”) announced the recipients of its 2019 scholarship awards: Sadia Wilson (Sir Harry D. Butterfield Undergraduate Scholarship).
The Sir Harry D. Butterfield Undergraduate Scholarship is awarded to a Bermudian student commencing, or already pursuing, a degree overseas at an accredited university.
This Scholarship has been offered every year since 1978 in honor of Butterfield’s late Chairman, former Rhodes Scholar, Sir Harry D. Butterfield, whose distinguished career in public and business life was dedicated to the betterment of Bermuda and Bermudians.
The award has an annual value of $25,000, tenable for up to four years. The 2019 recipient Sadia Wilson is currently enrolled at the University of Bristol where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in cellular molecular medicine.
Wilson hopes to become a dental surgeon to help combat poor dental hygiene and the resulting oral ailments. In addition to her academic achievements, Wilson is a passionate gymnast, who has won many medals for Bermuda and England.
Wilson said, “I am applying the same drive to working towards becoming a dental surgeon that I have successfully applied to becoming an elite gymnast.”
