ICMA announces the recipients from Africa and Asia for its 2022 Scholarship Programme
16 February 2022 ICMA is delighted to announce the students who have been selected from Africa and Asia to its 2022 scholarship programme. The 20 individuals from Sub-Saharan Africa (Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia) and 15 from Asia (Malaysia, Mongolia, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) were selected from an extensive number of applications received, based on their academic attainments and a personal statement on their suitability for their chosen course of study. The ICMA scholarship programme is part of ICMA's mission to raise standards and support inclusion in financial markets.
The new students will study online for an ICMA Diploma in either debt capital markets, securities & derivatives or financial market operations, starting next month. Bryan Pascoe, Chief Executive, said ‘Supporting the development of financial market participation in emerging economies is a major focus for ICMA. Congratulations and welcome to our selected scholarship applicants from Asia and Africa. We wish them all the best with their studies and in their future careers.’
