You or your student could be the deserving recipient of the Tomlinson Family Scholarship. But have they applied for admission to their eligible university yet? Deadlines are fast approaching for the 2024 Fall Semester, with some as soon as November 1st.
The Tomlinson Scholarship Foundation provides annual awards of up to US$15,000 per student for those exceptional Bahamian students enrolling in selected universities in Canada. Recipients are required to continue with their approved major throughout the duration of the scholarship unless a change is approved by the Selection Committee. Students must maintain an overall average of at least 65% (or “C”) at all times, and at least a 70% average (or “B-”) in their major courses starting in the second year. Recipients must pledge to return to The Bahamas upon graduation to pursue their careers, and are encouraged to become members of the Tomlinson Scholars’ Alumni Association and participate in Tomlinson Alumni functions to help ensure that other Bahamians may benefit from the opportunities they have enjoyed. The proceeds from this award may only be applied towards Approved Costs such as tuition, books, accommodation, food, health insurance and air fares.
