TWO STUDENTS RECEIVED SCHOLARSHIPS FROM CONCORDIA MARITIME (BERMUDA) LTD.
2018 scholarships from Concordia Maritime (Bermuda) Ltd. has been awarded to Lamar Samuels and Anthony Durham Jr. as a support for their maritime studies abroad.
Lamar Samuels will study marine engineering at undergraduate level at South Tyneside College. He has been awarded a three-year scholarship and as a first step a sum of 2,750 USD. Over the last few years, Lamar has been employed as Watch Leader aboard the Spirit of Bermuda where he gained valuable work experience and participated in several international travels. The experience from his time aboard the Spirit gave him important professional skills. And the fact that he got excellent seamanship training is something he thinks will also be useful during his studies at South Tyneside College.
Andre Durham Jr. will study higher education, which will support his main career goal; namely to start a charter business. In September, he began studying applied science at the Northeastern Maritime Institute’s science programme.
For the last three years, Andre has been employed as a mate aboard the fishing vessel F/V Hakuna Matata, and abroad on the fishing vessel the Vitamin Sea. Andre will receive a scholarship of 2,000 USD.
