Republic Bank has made another contribution to the development of young people on the island, through education.
The 2013 Top CXC Performer, Josh H.P. Henry, a graduate of the Grenada Boys’ Secondary School, was awarded $1,000 for his outstanding performance in this year’s CXC Examinations.
In presenting the award, Managing Director of the bank, Keith Johnson applauded Josh for his achievement and encouraged him to continue striving for excellence.
Josh, a student at the T.A. Marryshow Community College, thanked the Bank for the gesture and promised to continue working diligently in his pursuit to become a mechanical engineer.
For the 2013/2014 academic year, fifteen (15) Grenadians received bursaries under the Bank’s ongoing Bursary Programme with the University of the West Indies – Open Campus.
Johnson again encouraged the recipients to work hard in their pursuit of academic advancement and pledged the Bank’s commitment to continue empowering Grenadians, through education.
A total of $19,440.00 was disbursed to qualified students for semester I. A total of $60,000 is reserved annually by Republic Bank for education assistance – $40,000 for its Bursary programme, and $20,000 for the Scholarship programme.
The Republic Bank Bursary Programme has, to date, expended $137,810 to assist several Grenadians who are otherwise unable to study full time at a UWI Campus.
Disbursement is based on academic ability and case of need.
