In keeping with Scotiabank's unwavering commitment to Dominica's youth, the Bank has granted scholarships to two well deserving students to attend Secondary School this coming September. The two newest additions to Scotiabank's Scholarship programme are Nailah Alexis, who previously attended the St. Martin Primary School and Augustin Lambert Frederick, who attended the Petite Savanne Primary School.

Nailah will begin her high school career at the Convent High School and says she is very elated that she was chosen for the Scotiabank scholarship.

"I really appreciate what they are doing and for giving me a chance to attend high school with less expenses. I promise that I will not disappoint." says Nailah.

Her parents Hildreth and Edwin Alexis also displayed their gratitude and promised to always provide continued support to Nailah along her new journey.

Augustin's father, Augustin Sr. described his son as a very intelligent young man and strongly believes that this great opportunity will help mold Augustin into a successful, well-rounded individual as some of the Scholarship terms are that he maintains good grades and engage himself in community/social work. Augustin will attend the Castle Bruce Secondary School.

Scotiabank's Bright Future Programme actively assists young people through education, culture, health and sports every year. The Bank is also the longest-standing sponsor of cricket in the region and title sponsor of Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket. Their Scholarship programme was re-introduced in 2013 and now provides assistance to 10 students from various communities across the island.
