The Ministry of Education, the CISA and the CMHF came together to establish the Gwen Bush Memorial Scholarship in order to revive the boat building trade of yesteryear Cayman and other maritime careers.

The scholarship is so named in recognition of Ms. Gwen Bush’s dedicated service to Caymanian seamen during the “Southwell” years of shipping in the Cayman Islands.
