Islanders granted scholarships to further studies

Two Falkland Islanders have been granted funds from Stanley Services Scholarship in order to gain qualifications that will be put to use in the islands.

Tiphanie May was awarded £6,000 to undertake an MSc in applied aquatic biology which will enable her to further her career as fisheries scientist.

Nathan Browning received £521 in order to undertake a BTEC in construction and surveying.

The Stanley Service Scholarship funding scheme was launched in March 2008 and is open for those aged over 21 who wish to retrain or gain qualifications which will be used within the Falklands in the course of their individual careers.
