Standard Bank’s Maths, Sciences, Commerces, and Technologies-Based Bursary Programme Opportunities on 2020 for Current and Future Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students
As far as its history goes, The Standard Bank Group (or referred as “Standard Bank” in this article) remains South African’s leading bank with gargantuan-sized banking service networks inside and outside the African continent.
When the aforementioned reality is coupled with its competent banking operation management and strategic controls in the insurance industry, it is no doubt that Standard Bank becomes one of the most financially powerful banks to disburse its funds to various educating and enriching programmes. One of those programmes is a bursary programme, in which Standard Bank financially supports over-achiever scholars to study in its partnering institutions according to the selected study fields.
Standard Bank’s Bursary Programme’s Schemes and Its Requirements
The African society will bring in positively significant contributions in the 21st century, and the vast majority of these contributing people are South African youths. Knowing these phenomena, Standard Bank feels compelled to shape and strengthen South African’s brightest youth capabilities through many different programmes, including giving out fully-funded bursaries for the sake of African-led future.
As a part of its grand bursary schemes, Standard Bank trains its young South African bursary recipients’ visionary leadership skills. Nine students among all bursary recipients will go to complete their postgraduate qualifications in Cambridge, Oxford, or The London School of Economics and Political Science in the United Kingdom according to their chosen academic expertises.
