14 April 2019 | Education
The bank awarded bursaries to Namalwa Amakali, a second year Bachelor's in Forensic Science student at the University of Free State as well as Muningandu Tjingaete and Petros Kambinda, who are second and third year Cyber Security students at NUST, respectively, and Lara Bartholomae, a first year Actuarial Science student at Stellenbosch University.
Speaking at a bursary award hand-over in Windhoek, Standard Bank's Isdor Angula said the bursary recipients are almost guaranteed employment at the Blue Bank, which employs close to 2 000 people in Namibia and 50 000 across the globe. He said the recipients were carefully selected out of over 1 000 students who had applied for financial assistance.
The bursary recipients are expected to undergo internship training during school holidays at different Standard Bank branches and departments across the country, where they will also be paid an allowance.
