As part of efforts to secure a knowledge-based future that is diverse, Sterling Bank has unveiled a “Grow with Sterling initiative,” aimed at supporting the educational advancement of young secondary school leavers.

Already, the bank has signed an agreement with Washington based Nexford University by sponsoring secondary school leavers in Nigeria to earn international undergraduate degrees for a period of three years.

To also gain hands-on expertise, the beneficiaries would be concurrently engaged by the bank to serve in specific capacities in a work-study arrangement.

In a statement by the Chief Human Resources Officer of the bank, Temi Dalley, he explained that the programme is part of the financial institution’s new-to-the-world opportunities for young Nigerians to get access to quality and affordable education while gaining cognate work experience.

The statement further noted that the bank would pay 65 per cent tuition of learners admitted into the programme, marking a significant investment in the education of young Nigerians.

The statement read: “Grow with Sterling initiative is a co-branded social impact programme that would enable secondary school leavers further their education under a unique partnership arrangement with the bank as the financier and Nexford University as the learning provider.”

Dalley added that learners would get complimentary access to 20 per cent tuition discount as well as free enrolment on online learning platforms among others.
