Group gives scholarships to 10 students

Published

on

MAC Bickersteth, Leadway Assurance, KPMG, and Andersen have awarded 10 students with full tertiary education grant.

This was done by the Seyi Bickersteth Scholarship Programme 2021.

The Seyi Bickersteth Scholarship Programme is in honour of late Seyi Bickersteth, who was the past National Senior Partner, KPMG and Chairman, KPMG Africa; Board Member, Leadway Assurance; and Chairman, Andersen Africa.

A statement signed by the group said the scholarship programme was targeted at indigent individuals studying Economics, Accounting, Finance, Actuarial Science, Insurance or Business Administration, saying each beneficiary would receive the sum of N400,000.00 annually for four years of their tertiary education.

Wife of late Seyi Bickersteth and Trustee of the SBSP, Mrs Catherine Bickersteth, said the scholarship programme was in consonance with the family’s tradition of offering scholarships to deserving individuals.

“The Seyi Bickersteth Scholarship Programme identifies intellect, passion and leadership traits in students with financial challenges, just like Seyi had these challenges several years ago before the Federal government stepped in. I am hopeful that the beneficiaries of this programme will grasp the full measure of the opportunity and embrace the principles of intellectual excellence, unassailable integrity, and enduring impact, as well as emulate Seyi’s thirst for and commitment to diverse knowledge and its use for positive and selfless impact.”

Chairman, Leadway Holdings, Mr Oye Hassan-Odukale, congratulated the awardees and encouraged them to embody, reflect and replicate the same high-performance spirit, talent and values, Seyi had and even more.
