Deutsche Bank (Cayman) Limited has announced a partnership with the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands to award a scholarship to local students wishing to pursue a career in the visual arts.

The four-year scholarship, worth US$20,000 a year, forms part of the collaboration between Deutsche Bank and the National Gallery and will be awarded to assist local students with the funding of their visual arts education overseas. The student will also aim to pursue a career in the visual arts in the Cayman Islands post-graduation. It is intended that, through the graduates, the visual arts will continue to develop on the Islands.

Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis to either Caymanian students or students legally resident in the Cayman Islands who have been accepted to colleges or universities that are approved by the Education Council of the Cayman Islands Government. Applicants must also be between 17 and 25 years of age at the date of the application deadline.

Applications for the scholarship are processed once a year, with the deadline for applications this year being 31st July 2007 for a September or January university semester start-date.

Jean-Claude Emard, Chief Country Officer, Deutsche Bank (Cayman) Ltd, commented:

“I am delighted to be able to launch Deutsche Bank’s partnership with the National Gallery. The scholarship galvanizes Deutsche Bank’s support of the visual arts and our commitment to offering opportunities to local students in this field. The world of art provides us all with a great deal of inspiration and stimulates communication and cultural understanding. I am looking forward to receiving this year’s scholarship applications and following the progress of our scholarship students in the future.”
