(CNS): Campbells has named Kira March and Luca Polloni as the winners of the firm’s undergraduate scholarships for 2016. March is a two-time scholarship recipient entering her second year at St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, where she is pursuing a bachelor of science degree in human kinetics. Polloni is entering his first year at George Mason University in Virginia where he will work toward a bachelor of science degree in accounting.

March 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,” March said. “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.”

Polloni, who is an outstanding student and avid footballer, said, “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.”

Alistair Walters, Campbells partner, said the law firm is pleased to support “two promising young Caymanians”, adding, “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.”

Campbells’ scholarships are available to Caymanian students pursuing undergraduate programmes, with preference given to legal. Applications are considered annually, with a 30 April deadline, and may be granted to one or more students.

The firm also grants a BVI scholarship and sponsors the St Ignatius A-Level law programme each year, where it is involved in various activities with the students, including a moot competition.
