BAHAMIAN students Jasmine Bethel and Ravyn Maycock are the 2018-2019 recipients of PwC Bahamas' Remelda Moxey Scholarship.
The scholarship is awarded to Bahamian students pursuing full-time undergraduate or graduate degrees in accounting at any accredited institution. The scholarship is named after the dean of the Faculty of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies at the University of The Bahamas, Remelda Moxey, a PwC alumnus.
Myra Lundy-Mortimer, human capital partner at PwC Bahamas, said: "Both Jasmine and Ravyn are young, dynamic Bahamians who have, in their short years, exemplified high standards of excellence."
Ms Bethel, who recently completed her third year at Dalhousie University, is pursuing a bachelor of commerce degree with a major in accounting and a minor in informatics.
For Ms Maycock, a 2018 honour student and graduate of Queen's College, the scholarship represents a dream that was almost deferred due to a sudden autoimmune disease that caused her to miss almost a year of high school in 2016.
This fall, she will be enrolling at Florida International University (FIU) to start a bachelor's degree in accounting.
"My parents are still paying my medical bills, so I am thankful that this scholarship will help to relieve them of the added financial burden," she said.
