<strong>Scholarship</strong> Secretariat, Ministry of Education,<br />

Employment & Gender Affairs. Heather-Ann Cahill,<br />

of the Careers Advisory Service. Yello writer, Kaylyn<br />

Bodden. All of our advertisers who have invested<br />

in the education of students and participated in this<br />

directory. The business locations where we distribute<br />

the directories. Thank you everyone for your support.<br />


We’ve welcomed in a new year, and along<br />

with this, we can look forward to new<br />

possibilities and promises.<br />

As a student or a parent of a student,<br />

hopefully one of your new year’s<br />

resolutions was to be proactive about<br />

applying for and securing a scholarship.<br />

Therefore, we encourage all students,<br />

parents and teachers to read this<br />

magazine in order to fully embrace the<br />

scholarship opportunities available in the<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong> Islands.<br />

Deadlines are already looming,<br />

and although some deadlines may<br />

seem a long way in the future, don’t<br />

procrastinate. Be proactive! There is no better time than the present to do your<br />

research, submit your application forms and take comfort in knowing that you’re now<br />

part of the selection process.<br />

For those scholarships closing midsummer, take advantage of time and thoroughly<br />

prepare your applications. Even practice interview techniques.<br />

The master listings – pages 26-28 – highlight the scholarships offered by both the<br />

private and public sectors.<br />

Are you qualified for the scholarship you are applying for? Don’t waste your time or<br />

the scholarship committee’s time, if you don’t qualify. Thoroughly research which<br />

scholarships you are eligible for before submitting applications.<br />

Be sure to let your personality shine through on paper, and, in person.<br />

Good luck to all of our potential superstars in the selection process.<br />

Finally, thank you to the organisations that continue to invest in the further education<br />

of local students and support this directory. By awarding these scholarships, they<br />

lighten the financial burden on students and their families, which allows students to<br />

focus on the most important aspect of their college and university<br />

experiences – learning.<br />

Q U E S T I O N & A N S W E R W I T H<br />


As a successful applicant of the EY <strong>Scholarship</strong>, Alex shares his<br />

experience and career path as inspiration to students<br />

who hope to apply for scholarships in <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

1. What advice would you give to students who are thinking<br />

of applying for the EY <strong>Scholarship</strong>?<br />

I would encourage students to gain as many extracurricular<br />

experiences as possible and apply early. They should also<br />

research the background and requirements to ensure the<br />

scholarship meets their career goals.<br />

2. What does it mean to be an EY <strong>Scholarship</strong> recipient?<br />

Being a recipient has provided numerous levels of support<br />

towards my career goals by means of internal mentorship and<br />

practical experience. Additionally, I am able to maintain and<br />

thrive within my extracurricular goals thanks to the advice and<br />

assistance from everyone at EY.<br />

Alex McCallum, was awarded the EY <strong>Scholarship</strong> in May<br />

2013 to pursue his undergraduate degree in Economics with<br />

Accounting at Loughborough University in England. In July<br />

2016 he graduated with First Class honours and returned to<br />

EY full time as a staff accountant. Alex was recognized for<br />

achieving the qualifying time for the FINA World Swimming<br />

Championships and in December 2016, he represented the<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong> Islands in Canada.<br />

3. Who inspires you?<br />

I would have to say Michael Phelps and my teams at EY.<br />

Through determination and everyday sacrifices, Michael<br />

Phelps has become one of the greatest swimmers in the world.<br />

My teams at EY because of their support toward my success<br />

and their contributions to our community. I am constantly<br />

challenged and provided opportunities to improve my technical<br />

skills and the success and support of everyone around me<br />

inspires me to constantly thrive throughout my career.<br />

Michael McWatt, Managing Director and Sean Whewell, 2016 Undergraduate <strong>Scholarship</strong> Recipient<br />

Butterfield is committed to<br />

helping young <strong>Cayman</strong>ians<br />

reach their potential through<br />

higher education, that’s why we<br />

provide the Annual Butterfield<br />

Undergraduate <strong>Scholarship</strong>—<br />

to assist students who are<br />

pursuing an undergraduate<br />

degree at overseas colleges and<br />

universities.<br />

This is the “<strong>Scholarship</strong> of<br />

Choice”: Butterfield invites<br />

students wishing to pursue<br />

any academic area to apply.<br />

Past recipients include lawyers,<br />

accountants, teachers, artists,<br />

health professionals and all are<br />

contributing their knowledge<br />

and passion for the benefit of<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong>’s community.<br />

To become a Butterfield<br />

<strong>Scholarship</strong> recipient, receiving<br />

up to $30,000 towards tertiary<br />

level tuition for four years,<br />

you will have excellent grades<br />

and be an all-around student,<br />

with passions outside of the<br />

classroom.<br />

Here are some important tips<br />

to note when applying for the<br />

Butterfield Undergraduate<br />

<strong>Scholarship</strong>:<br />

- You must be <strong>Cayman</strong>ian and<br />

between the ages of 17 to 25.<br />

- Make sure you complete the<br />

Butterfield Undergraduate<br />

<strong>Scholarship</strong> Application in full.<br />

guardian undertaking to accept<br />

responsibility for additional<br />

funds over and above the<br />

<strong>Scholarship</strong> allowance necessary<br />

“When looking for a University it was important<br />

to me to find a place that would allow me<br />

to continue with my passion for swimming.<br />

The UK was the best fit and while studying<br />

accounting, I’ve even participated in the<br />

Olympics.” - Geoff Butler, 2014 scholarship<br />

recipient, studying at the University of<br />

Edinburgh.<br />

“When I was studying accounting in Canada,<br />

I wasn’t sure which line of service what I liked<br />

best. So I did work experience during the<br />

summers with the tax group. I joined the firm<br />

after graduation with the audit group.<br />

Now with experience in both I know tax is the<br />

right fit for me and I’ll rejoin that group in the<br />

summer.” - Sarah Hale, 2014 scholarship<br />

recipient, joined the firm in 2016.<br />

“I majored in business in the US and joined<br />

the firm after graduation to learn more about<br />

accounting. I received study support for the<br />

CPA while getting work experience. My path<br />

wasn’t traditional for scholarships but it was<br />

right for me PwC.” - Cara Verhoeven, joined<br />

2016 <strong>Scholarship</strong> Recipient, Mya Scotchman<br />

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to<br />

change the world”<br />

Nelson Mandela<br />

Educating <strong>Cayman</strong>’s youth has been one of the most important<br />

missions of the Insurance Managers Association of <strong>Cayman</strong><br />

(IMAC) since 1994 when it launched its Educational <strong>Scholarship</strong><br />

Trust Fund, a needs-based scholarship programme for young<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong>ians.<br />

Over the past 23 years, 38 students have been awarded financial<br />

grants totaling $3.1 million that have enabled them to study in<br />

their areas of interest, covering a wide range of academic fields<br />

– music, film, biomedical science, early childhood education,<br />

veterinary medicine, sociology and ecology, as well as business<br />

administration, marketing and human resources. This is what<br />

makes the IMAC Educational <strong>Scholarship</strong> unique in the <strong>Cayman</strong><br />

Islands – its ability to provide opportunities for students who<br />

would not otherwise be able to pursue tertiary education,<br />

regardless of their preferred field of study.<br />

Students are required to keep a good academic standing in order<br />

to continue to receive their funding. The maximum award is<br />

US$40,000 per annum. They are, however, encouraged to return<br />

to <strong>Cayman</strong> to apply the knowledge and skills that they have<br />

gained in university to the local business environment.<br />

Who is behind all of this inspiring work? IMAC is the<br />

representative body of the captive insurance industry in the<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong> Islands, including the insurance managers, and service<br />

providers including bankers, lawyers and auditors who support<br />

them. The organisation is non-profit and is audited by a Big<br />

Four accounting firm. It was established to support, strengthen<br />

and promote <strong>Cayman</strong> as a leading captive insurance domicile in<br />

its target markets around the world, as well as to act as a liaison<br />

between the clients, the industry, the regulator (the <strong>Cayman</strong><br />

Islands Monetary Authority) and legislators (the <strong>Cayman</strong> Islands<br />

Government).<br />

The captive insurance industry is vitally important to <strong>Cayman</strong> and<br />

the domicile remains one of the largest and most successful in the<br />

world. More than 700 captive insurance companies call <strong>Cayman</strong><br />

home, and they are managed by more than 30 local companies,<br />

who maintain the mind and management of the captives,<br />

solidifying <strong>Cayman</strong>’s position as a viable and strong international<br />

financial services centre. This thriving industry contributes<br />

approximately $100 million annually to the local economy through<br />

the people it employs and the business it attracts.<br />

The Educational <strong>Scholarship</strong> is the industry’s way of giving back to<br />

the <strong>Cayman</strong> community and to ensure that as many young people<br />

as possible have an opportunity to be well educated, so that they, in<br />

turn, can make a positive impact on their world.<br />

By Lisa Beauchamp<br />

From the way you present yourself on paper on your<br />

application forms and your resume, to how you dress and<br />

conduct yourself in the interview(s); potential employers are<br />

thoroughly scrutinise applicants and this includes checking out<br />

your online profiles and activities.<br />

Employers will often reject applications solely based on viewing<br />

their social media.<br />

Don’t lose the chance of a lifetime by sharing way too much on<br />

your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter accounts.<br />

Here are some tips on keeping your online persona and social<br />

media accounts interview friendly:<br />

Do be yourself: fully utilise the information that you are sharing<br />

online. Don’t appear as if you are hiding some bad habits.<br />

Do be aware of what you post: delete all of your silly prank<br />

pictures and videos (especially drunken photos if you are<br />

underage!) and childish or inappropriate comments.<br />

Do be mature about the content: include photos of awards<br />

received, charity or community events that you’ve participated<br />

in; share book reviews, intellectual quotes and reveal places<br />

you’ve travelled to.<br />

Do be proactive: connect online with the company that you are<br />

applying to for a scholarship. Keep up to date on their posts and<br />

tweets.<br />

Do be your own brand: create your own brand and market your<br />

strong personal qualities, experience and ambitions. Companies<br />

want to award scholarships to students who are committed to<br />

and focused on their future.<br />

Do be smart with personal email addresses: if you are stating<br />

your personal email address on an application form, ensure its<br />

non-offensive and preferably professional.<br />

Do share: relevant comments and articles, positively interact<br />

with friends, retweet interesting posts.<br />

Don’t be careless with who you add as a friend and follow:<br />

potential employers are going to consider who you are connected<br />

to. Diligently and routinely delete and tidy up your contacts list.<br />

Don’t overshare: too much information is literally that – too<br />

much! You may think that sharing details of when you are going<br />

to the bathroom are necessary or photos of your burger lunch<br />

are appealing, however, your friends – and future employers –<br />

may not.<br />

Don’t be political: some potential employers may shy away<br />

from an applicant who they regard as too politically biased.<br />

Keep your political opinions private.<br />

Don’t speak negatively about your teachers, colleagues or<br />

anybody: if you have an issue with someone, take initiative to<br />

deal with it maturely, one on one. Don’t use social media as<br />

your platform to rant.<br />

Don’t share your emotions: whether angry or sad, keep your<br />

emotions in check. Use the telephone to verbally express your<br />

tearful emotions to your friends.<br />

Don’t rely on your settings being 100% private: if you follow<br />

all of the do’s and don’ts above, then you won’t have to<br />

worry too much about this. However, settings are constantly<br />

being updated, so pay attention at all times and follow the<br />

instructions.<br />

Take social media very seriously, sharpen your presence on line.<br />

The time that you invest in your personal online marketing<br />

could pay off handsomely with a company investing in you and<br />

your future.

(L-R) Minds Inspired Scholars Daniel Nicholson-Gardner, Drew Milgate, Ethan Whittaker and David Forbes during their summer enrichment at<br />

Dart Neuroscience in San Diego, California.<br />

When you do the common things in life the uncommon<br />

way, you will command the attention of the world. - George<br />

Washington Carver<br />

Some of the greatest discoveries in history do not happen in<br />

sophisticated labs filled with special gadgets; rather, people<br />

with the desire to solve simple problems discover through<br />

innovation. In inventor Benjamin Franklin’s time, electricity<br />

was only used in magic tricks to set off sparks and small shocks.<br />

Benjamin wondered if there was a better way to use electricity<br />

than just amusement. Using only a kite and a key during<br />

a storm, he proved that lightning was a form of electricity<br />

and that it could be transferred through metal. His simple<br />

experiment resulted in the development of electric power,<br />

modernising the entire world as he knew it.<br />

Benjamin Franklin’s mission in his research and discovery<br />

was never to become famous but to improve the society he<br />

lived in. Studying STEM – science, technology, engineering<br />

and mathematics – gives students the same power to shape<br />

the world that they live in. Students with strong STEM<br />

backgrounds are often more creative, analytical and more likely<br />

to succeed in other academic areas than their peers.<br />

The need for STEM workers grows every day as new industries<br />

and careers evolve. In fact, STEM careers are expected to be the<br />

fastest growing group of occupations in the next five years as<br />

well as the highest earning. For example, petroleum engineering<br />

majors currently stand to earn an entry-level salary of over<br />

$80,000 USD once they complete their degrees, according<br />

to Forbes.com. While there are exceptions, STEM graduates<br />

generally earn higher starting salaries and have greater job<br />

security than graduates of other disciplines.<br />

The added advantage of studying STEM is that it still leaves<br />

room for opportunities in other fields. A 2015 U.S. National<br />

Science Board report found that today’s employers are seeking<br />

individuals with advanced technical and analytical skills –<br />

even for jobs that did not traditionally require them such as<br />

office administrators and recruitment specialists. As the world<br />

continues to be modernised, STEM proficiency will become<br />

more and more necessary for success in the workplace.<br />

STEM is driven by innovation as the fields often intersect,<br />

produce new knowledge and then further develop. Simple<br />

discoveries much like Ben Franklin’s are taking place every<br />

day and changing the future in ways that cannot be presently<br />

understood. With the reasons to study STEM being countless,<br />

the greatest is simply, “Do you want to change the world you<br />

live in?”.

aiming to keep your student debt to a<br />

minimum.<br />

Have you travelled overseas? If so, where<br />

and what were your experiences?<br />

The confidence to travel and ability to<br />

take responsibility for your own well<br />

being while overseas, are significant<br />

factors for the interviewers to consider.<br />

Focus on positive experiences. If<br />

applicable, share details of a situation that<br />

you had to handle on your own and how<br />

you overcame this challenge.<br />

You’ve submitted your application form,<br />

waited patiently for a response, and then,<br />

thankfully received a request to attend an<br />

interview with the <strong>Scholarship</strong>s Committee<br />

at the organisation where you have applied.<br />

Nerves set in and you start to wonder, ‘what<br />

questions will I be asked?’<br />

Each interviewing committee will have its<br />

own list of criteria.<br />

In order to prepare in advance, read<br />

through the selection below of standard<br />

questions asked at a scholarship interview:<br />

Tell us about yourself?<br />

This is your opportunity to tell the<br />

interviewer(s) what distinguishes you from<br />

other applicants. Don’t recite your resume.<br />

Convey what makes you an interesting<br />

individual – a special talent or interest, and<br />

the past experiences that set you apart.<br />

Why do you wish to enter this career?<br />

You must prove your reasons and know the<br />

answer to this question. It is very important<br />

to focus on what motivates you. Refer to<br />

books, movies, mentors, and public figures,<br />

and reveal your influences.<br />

What are your academic goals?<br />

Be ready to reveal not only your academic<br />

goals, but also your future career goals.<br />

They work hand in hand. The organisation<br />

may offer you a job as a result of your<br />

scholarship.<br />

Do you have proven leadership skills?<br />

You may not have held titled leadership<br />

roles, however, have you led a team at<br />

sports, a special project or a charity event?<br />

Describe how you motivated your team<br />

members or organised something that<br />

involved a group of people.<br />

Why should you be awarded the<br />

scholarship?<br />

Be honest and sincere. Highlight your<br />

work ethic and past accomplishments<br />

representative of your commitment to your<br />

future education and success. Please do not<br />

announce that without the scholarship you<br />

are unable to attend college.<br />

What are your strengths?<br />

Be sure you come up with two to three<br />

strengths and back them up with concrete<br />

examples.<br />

What are your weaknesses?<br />

Share a weakness that you have converted<br />

into a strength by facing your fear. Show<br />

how you have overcome this fear by reading<br />

and research, or taking a course. Show<br />

initiative.<br />

How do you plan to allocate the<br />

scholarship money?<br />

Create a budget that features your<br />

estimated expenses for gaining a degree,<br />

include all resources. Prove that you are<br />

If you are unsuccessful in receiving a<br />

scholarship from us, what will you do?<br />

It’s acceptable to admit that you would<br />

be disappointed to be rejected. Ask<br />

for alternative ways to be part of the<br />

organisation in the future, perhaps by<br />

seeking a role as a summer student.<br />

Confirm that you will apply to other<br />

organisations within the industry for a<br />

scholarship opportunity. Make it clear that<br />

you understand that persistence pays off<br />

and that you are worthy of investing in.<br />

Do you have any questions?<br />

Don’t be shy to ask questions, this proves<br />

your desire to learn more about the<br />

company and opportunities. Have a<br />

list of questions prepared. Also, ask for<br />

clarification about any topics discussed<br />

that you need further explanation<br />

regarding. Don’t ask questions for the sake<br />

of asking questions, show genuine interest.<br />

Be prepared to answer questions<br />

regarding your hobbies and interests,<br />

which you may have stated in your<br />

application form.<br />

You may be asked further questions about<br />

your interests, to reveal what books you<br />

have read, to elaborate about places you<br />

have visited, or, people you have met, etc.<br />

Be honest when completing your<br />

application form. Highlight your<br />

strengths and accomplishments, and most<br />

all of – be yourself.

By Kaylyn Bodden<br />

Kaylyn Bodden graduated with a BA (Bachelors of Arts) in English<br />

& Writing at the University of Tampa.<br />

Heading overseas to school for the first time is exciting, but<br />

can also be extremely daunting. You’re finally getting some<br />

independence – hooray! – yet perhaps the hardest part is<br />

budgeting.<br />

Whether you receive a scholarship grant from the government,<br />

a private business, or a monthly allowance from your parents,<br />

now is the time to learn how to prioritise. If you are fortunate<br />

enough to have a weekend job, this can help your wallet,<br />

although don’t take on too much unless you’re certain you can<br />

handle it.<br />

Here are some practical budgeting tips for students:<br />

The 50/20/30 Rule<br />

Depending on how much money you receive monthly, and what<br />

your bills are like (if you live in an apartment then you’ll incur<br />

electric, water, phone bill), the 50/20/30 rule applies as follows:<br />

50% of your monthly allowance should be allocated to your<br />

necessities. Also consider groceries, your phone bill and any<br />

other school related expenses you may have.<br />

20% of your allowance should be saved. You should always<br />

make sure to have savings in case of emergencies, but also in<br />

case you plan on doing any traveling or making any investments<br />

in the future. Treat this as money you don’t have – don’t touch<br />

it unless you absolutely have to, as this will add up and help you<br />

in the future.<br />

30% of your allowance is free for spending. You’re a college<br />

student so spend this on going out with friends, shopping, taxis<br />

or anything you want, yet don’t necessarily need.<br />

The 50/20/30 rule may not work for you if your monthly<br />

Kaylyn Bodden <strong>2017</strong><br />

allowance is low, but it does give you an idea of what you should<br />

be saving each month.<br />

Here are some more tips that may come in handy.<br />

• Take advantage of free things. There are a lot of deals at<br />

restaurants, bars, stores and local activities around or near your<br />

campus offering freebies or discounts to students. Carry your<br />

student ID with you at all times.<br />

• Your school! Schools love to give away free things. They may<br />

also have set meal plans that may come in handy when you<br />

are hungry. Some schools offer free events, speakers, concerts<br />

and other things you can benefit from, so keep an eye out for<br />

advertisements.<br />

• Buy in bulk. This may sound eccentric, and you may not have<br />

a whole lot of space for three jugs of peanut butter, still buying<br />

in bulk is always cheaper. You will save significantly in the long<br />

run.<br />

• A friend with wheels. If you don’t have your own car, having<br />

a close friend with a car is always beneficial. In exchange for a<br />

ride buy him/her lunch or dinner, or offer money for gas, it will<br />

be appreciated.<br />

• One word: Sale! If you need some new shoes, clothes or<br />

supplies, make sure you keep your ‘sale’ radar on. Some stores<br />

offer practical pieces at attractive sale prices if you know where<br />

and when to look – that being said, don’t go overboard.<br />

• Always make sure you have some money left over before<br />

month end. Do not allow yourself to become completely broke<br />

before receiving your monthly allowance. It will only stress you<br />

out, and cause you major worry. Again, it’s best to commit to<br />

the 50/20/30 rule.
