For the fifth consecutive year, Commonwealth Bank is offering students at The College of The Bahamas (COB) hope, encouragement and support in the form of scholarships as part of Commonwealth Bank’s Emerging Leaders Award Programme.
Established in 2012, the $500,000 endowment fund managed by COB provides $50,000 worth of financial aid annually to promising full-time undergraduates who meet and maintain specific qualifications. To be eligible, students must be in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need. Over the course of this 10-year commitment, the gift will fund 40 student awards, valued at up to $12,000 each. To date, Commonwealth Bank contributions have totaled $250,000.
