University of the Bahamas Student Scholarships

The Bradley B. E. Roberts Foundation is proud to sponsor an annual $1,000 scholarship for three (3) students, in either their junior or final year of study, at the University of the Bahamas, majoring in any discipline, who are from the Bain and Grants Town Constituency. Those students in completing their junior or beginning their senior year are invited to apply. The Foundation is keen to award academically gifted and accomplished students with a monetary scholarship which they can use to apply to school fees or help to begin their new life after university.

Applicants should submit a personal narrative about what they hope to do upon completely the University of the Bahamas and how the degree that they are currently studying for will help them achieve their goals. Applicants are also asked to include any community service activities, as well as any interests they may have in Bahamian history, geopolitics or genealogy.

“In the framing of the 1964 Constitution of The Bahama Islands, we placed great emphasis on the provisions which guaranteed the under-mentioned civic, so- cial, political, economic and cultural rights.
Before the advent of a written constitution, the legislature of colonial Bahamas was supreme; true, its supremacy was not absolute in the sense in which the United Kingdom Parliament is absolute. As we have already stated, Bahamian legisla- tion was subject to the supervision of the Secretary of State who could withhold his assent if the proposed law infringed certain canons of justice or policy ingrained in the common law of England which had spread its roots throughout the British Commonwealth and struggled to protect the democratic rights of the people.
When internal self-government came into force on January 7, 1964, all those safeguards were entrenched into the constitution and called fundamental rights.”
