A total of BD200,000 has been pledged to the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Programme (CPISP) by GFH Financial Group.
The handover ceremony, which was held at the GFH premises, marked the group’s first monetary support of CPISP in the form of a platinum sponsor.
The donation was presented to CPISP board member and financial and administrative committee head Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa by GFH chairman Shaikh Ahmed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa.
Each year, CPISP awards 10 fully funded university scholarships to young men and women from both governmental and private secondary schools, based on their academic merit.
Since the programme’s inception, over 160 of Bahrain’s brightest high school graduates have been selected to pursue higher education degrees at top international universities around the world.
