HSBC student sponsorship

Posted on by Jackie

Students of Dcc.Sscholership program (12)We recently marked the second anniversary of our most recent partnership with HSBC, which has been sponsoring over 240 students through their education.

The programme covers O-level, A-level and university or vocational level students.

This older age group was selected as the most effective way to incentivize talented but disadvantaged students to continue their studies rather than leave school and find a job to support their families.

The students nearly all come from the Hambantota, Ambalantota and Galle educational zones in Southern province, although the university and vocational level students are based at institutions all over the country.

The Bank is helping to improve their educational qualifications and equip them with the skills they will need to meet potential job opportunities at the end of their formal education.

Pictured above are some of the A-level sponsorship students from Debarawewa Central College.
