Text Box: An Act of the British Guiana Parliament to provide for the administration of a fund for the granting of scholarships to children from the Buxton-Friendship District.
This scholarship enabled young Buxtonians to attend Queen’s College, Bishops’ High School and other top-rated secondary schools in Georgetown.
The first scholarship was awarded in 1925 to Balbir Ballgreene Nehaul, who attended Queen’s College and went on to become a Doctor of Medicine, specializing in Bacteriology and Pathology.
First runner-up was Claude Easton Holder, the youngest recipient at age 11, who also attended QC and went on to become a notable educator.
Second runner-up was Teacher Randall Butisingh. He was followed by Esther Fung.
Another notable winner of the scholarship  was the late Winifred Thierens Gaskin. She attended Bishops’ High School and went on to become the first runner-up for the British Guiana Scholarship and later a teacher, politician and diplomat.
