Al Salam grants 5 AUB scholarships to high-school students

December 27, 2022

Al Salam Bank , a leading bank in Bahrain, has sponsored scholarships for five high school graduates with outstanding academic records in collaboration with the American University of Bahrain, a purpose-built, American-model university.

This initiative was designed to ease the financial burdens associated with the pursuit of higher education. It also aims to empower the students throughout their education journey while ensuring their future professional success.

With this sponsorship, the bank continues to provide its unwavering support with a solution-oriented approach and the requisite financial assistance to effectively enable students to pursue higher levels of education across a diverse selection of academic levels, starting from kindergarten and higher education all the way to professional certifications.

Commenting on the occasion, Muna Al Balooshi, Head of Human Resources and Administration at Al Salam Bank, said: “Al Salam Bank has a vested interest in supporting academic initiatives and reinforcing talent. This stems from our belief in the importance of education for the progress of society at large. Our collaboration with the American University of Bahrain aligns with our commitment to engaging with the future generation.

“This will motivate them to pursue their academic endeavours, ultimately priming them for their professional careers. Our efforts remain focused on adding significant value to the banking sector and Bahraini society in general. We make this happen by cultivating long-standing relationships with local institutions that serve the community as we continue to support Bahrain’s youth as future leaders and as socially responsible individuals.”

The sponsorship comes in line with the bank’s guiding principle “Act with Empathy,” a guiding pillar under the bank’s brand DNA, in addition to the bank’s social responsibility platform, Al Salam Helping Hands.

In step with the bank’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework, the initiative also falls under the following UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: (4) Quality Education, (8) Decent Work and Economic Growth, and (17) Partnerships for the Goals.
