(CNS Local Life): Six students have been granted scholarships this year through a fund formed by the Insurance Managers Association Cayman (IMAC). These new awards bring the number of full-time students being supported to 20. Erin Brosnihan, director of the IMAC Educational Scholarship Fund, congratulated the new recipients, calling them “exceptionally bright, ambitious young people”.

She added, in an IMAC press release, “IMAC is very fortunate to be able to help these students in such a powerful way”, noting the opportunity the association is providing “for these incredible young people to go to university, when they may not otherwise be able to”.

The fund, which was established in 1994,  is currently supporting Ashli Welcome (veterinary medicine at Szent Istvan University Budapest); Amy Thompson (hospitality management, Portsmouth University); Leshontae Missick (medicine, International American University St Lucia); Miriam Mascal (marketing, University of Tampa); Julian Jervis (biology, George Washington University); Mya Scotchman (psychology, Plymouth University); Martynna Berry (communication and media studies, Carleton University); Shantelle Ellis (tourism management, University College Birmingham); Alexandra Artuch (English literature, University of East Anglia); Katlen Bush (social studies and education, Indiana Wesleyan University); Isaiah Robinson (computer science, Cardiff University); Jake Bennett (aviation management, Florida Institute of Technology); Katherine Tatum (psychology in education, University of York); Lacee Barnes (public relations, University of Texas); Jevaughnie Ebanks (film and television production, University of Bradford); Vanessa Burke (marketing, University of Liverpool); Nathan McCoy (biology at Baylor University); Aryana Grant (actuarial science, University of Essex); Deajra Tulloch (computer science, University of Surrey); and Enrique McCoy (business marketing with management, University of Birmingham);

The IMAC Educational Scholarship Fund, which was formed in 1994 by insurance managers and industry service providers, has assisted 48 students since its inception, stated the press release. The fund has raised more than US$3.9 million to date to support post-secondary education for Caymanians who would not otherwise have the financial means to attend.
