THE Bank of Namibia (BoN) has awarded eight bursaries to undergraduate students.
This is part of the bank’s corporate social investment and responsibility policy initiatives.
The focus of the bank’s bursary scheme is to make a meaningful contribution to the country, by developing skills and strengthening the capabilities in the fields of economics, accounting, auditing, banking, information technology and education, while specialising in mathematics and science.
To date, the bank has provided 84 undergraduate bursaries to deserving candidates, who would not have otherwise been able to afford tertiary education.
This excludes 22 beneficiaries, who are currently studying under the bursary scheme.
Some of the successful graduates that went through this scheme are in leadership positions at the bank, while others ply their trade at other institutions, thereby making significant contributions in the development of Namibia.
