Scholarship opportunities expand for C.O.B. civil engineering majors


Nassau, Bahamas — Scholarship opportunities are expanding for civil engineering majors at The College of The Bahamas, due in part to the generosity and vision of BHM Co. Ltd, formerly Bahamas Hot Mix Co. Ltd and the Bahamas Society of Engineers. On Thursday, September 4th, The College of The Bahamas received a donation that will fund a scholarship of $3,000 every two years for a full-time, undergraduate civil engineering technology major. There will also be an opportunity for the scholars to intern with BHM Co. Ltd.
