18 Jul 2019

Today Validus Re announced the winner of its Validus Scholarship, an annual program providing financial support to Bermudian students aimed at cultivating academic achievement, community involvement and leadership skills.  Halle Teart has been named as the 2019 Validus Scholar.  Halle is entering her sophomore year at Johns Hopkins University, studying Sociology and Africana Studies. Additional bursaries were awarded to Zahra Wilson who will attend the University of Tampa and Timothy Vieira who will attend McGill University. Support also continues for 2018 Validus Scholar, Kenji Robinson at Acadia University.

The Validus Scholarships provide funding to Bermudian students who are pursuing an undergraduate degree at an accredited university.  Scholars are selected based on academic acumen, financial need, good character and community involvement.

Jeff Clements, Chief Executive Officer of Validus Re said, “Halle was chosen from a very talented and competitive group of Bermudian students. She exhibits the strong work ethic and determination that we expect from Validus Scholars. We are delighted to support her as she continues her academic career.”

Norma Trott, Senior Vice President and Director of Human Resources said, “Validus Re remains committed to helping Bermuda’s students achieve their educational objectives. We look forward to seeing our scholars’ future accomplishments.”
