Meeting a Need

Established by leaders of Bermuda's insurance industry in 1996, BFIS is tasked with ensuring that Bermudian students are provided with opportunities to attain the education and training necessary for careers in Bermuda's insurance industry. This is being achieved through scholarships, mentoring, internships and career guidance.

As a Bermuda Registered Charity, BFIS is solely funded through pledges and donations, mainly from insurance companies and related industries, as well as a number of private individuals closely involved with the industry.

On behalf of the thousands of Bermudian students who have benefited from BFIS programmes, we say THANK YOU to all our donors.
