The Peter N. Thomson Family Foundation Awards is designed to recruit and support students who are driven to improve the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas in areas including, but not limited to, entrepreneurial studies, emerging technologies, design and creative arts and/or the sciences.
The Peter N. Thomson Family Foundation recognises the determination and ambition of students who have thoughtfully crafted dreams to make a difference in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas now and well into the future. The Thomson Leadership and Innovation Award seeks to reward the diligence, creativity, dedication and visions of the country’s most promising and inventive leaders. We seek to inspire scholars to dream big and plan how they will hone skills to bring back a big idea to revolutionize an industry or field in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas. This scholarship is awarded to candidates who are innovators and have a track record of implementing big ideas into successful projects.

You are passionate and driven to succeed in an emerging field that is underrepresented or wholly not represented in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas, or you desire to bring a completely new perspective to a traditional and longstanding field or industry and require further education to do so.
