Thirst Park, Georgetown – August 28, 2023 – In a heartwarming ceremony that celebrated academic excellence and a dedication to education, fourteen deserving students were granted bursaries through the Peter D’Aguiar's Scholarship Bursary Awards. The event took place at the Banks DIH Sports Club on August 26, 2023, and saw the convergence of proud parents, company employees, shareholders, and executives who came together to honor the accomplished recipients.

The five-year award program stands as a testament to the company's unwavering commitment to fostering education and supporting the community. This program provided valuable financial assistance to students who displayed exceptional dedication to their studies.

During his featured address, Mr. Shabir Hussein, Engineering Services Director, extended his heartfelt congratulations to the students, encouraging them to remain humble and continuously strive for excellence. He emphasized the company's commitment to offering future opportunities as they continue to develop and grow.

The Peter D’Aguiar's Scholarship Fund has been benefiting the children of employees and stakeholders for several years. A previous scholarship recipient felt compelled to give back this year, making a donation of her own to support the children of current employees. This scholarship symbolize the company's profound belief in nurturing talent, fostering aspirations, and enabling young individuals to make a positive impact on society. At Banks DIH Limited, we firmly believe that the bursary award serves as a reminder that qualities such as hard work, dedication, and a thirst for knowledge are deserving of celebration and reward.

Dr. Duncan noted that, “We are excited to partner with Banks DIH Limited to advance research and education in areas of mutual interest. This collaboration will provide our students and faculty members with valuable industry experience while also contributing to the creation of knowledge that benefits Guyana.”
