Bank of Maldives has today launched ‘BML Scholarship Fund’ as the first of series of 12 high impact monthly community initiatives to celebrate leading up to the Bank’s 40th anniversary in November 2022.
The scholarship fund launched today will provide fully funded international scholarships for three students in the area of Banking and Finance. The Fund, aimed at developing talented young Maldivians in the field, will be an annual fund, open to all.
BML’s CEO and Managing Director Tim Sawyer commented “We will be celebrating a significant milestone for the bank next year as we mark our 40th Anniversary. In the lead up to the day, we will be carrying out a major initiative each month as a way of supporting and appreciating our customers, communities and colleagues. Today we are delighted to announce the launch of the BML Scholarship Fund as the first initiative and through this, proud to give back and invest in the future of our nation.”
“As we continue our celebrations, we are happy to welcome ideas from the public to identify areas of investment that can benefit our communities. We intend to include some important environmental initiatives such as a massive tree planting campaign to support the COP discussions.”
The application process and eligibility criteria for BML Scholarship Fund will be published on the BML website at a later date.
