Campbells is pleased to announce that Kira March and Luca Polloni have been awarded our undergraduate scholarships for 2016.
“I am nothing but grateful to be one of the Campbells scholarship recipients this year. I am beginning one of the most important chapters of my life and I cannot thank Campbells enough for helping me take this big step”, said Luca Polloni who is entering his first year at George Mason University in Virginia where he will pursue a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. He is academically an outstanding student and avid footballer.
Kira March is a two-time Campbells’ scholarship recipient entering her second year at St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics. She has a passion for athletics and the healthy sustainability of the human body and upon her return hopes to use her degree to work with Cayman’s athletes. “I am honoured to be one of the recipients of the Campbells scholarship for the second year in a row now. The firm has shown me a high level of generosity and support over the last few years not only as a scholarship recipient but as an intern as well. I am beyond grateful”, Kira commented.
“We are pleased to support these two promising young Caymanians,” says Alistair Walters, Campbells Partner. “Both Kira and Luca exhibit the qualities we look for when choosing scholarship recipients and we are proud to support them in their pursuit for higher education”, he adds.
Campbells’ scholarships are available to Caymanian students pursuing undergraduate programmes, with preference given to legal. Applications are considered annually, with a 30 April application deadline, and may be granted to one or more applicants. In addition to many other sponsorship initiatives, Campbells also grants a BVI scholarship and sponsors the St Ignatius A-Level Law Programme each year, and works hard to enrich the programme by being actively involved in various activities with the students throughout the year, including a moot competition.
