Corporate Responsibility

NDB Capital Holdings Scholarship Programme

Funded by NDB Capital Holdings, NDB Capital Scholarship Trust (the Trust) is one of the largest corporate social responsibility initiatives of the Company. The Trust was established in 2013 with the intention of contributing to the country’s education system by providing assistance to deserving undergraduates. The awardees are selected from diverse backgrounds such as engineering, medicine, law and management studies through a highly competitive selection process. This social philanthropy also provides an opportunity for employees of the NDB Investment Banking Cluster to give back by providing financial assistance to shortlisted candidates not covered by the Trust.

In addition to providing financial assistance throughout university studies, the Trust also facilitates the nurturing of graduates who are more likely to succeed in the workforce and more appropriately skilled for gainful employment through its career counselling, internships, leadership and other training programmes. The Company believes that investing in the education of the country’s younger generation will provide both short and long term returns towards the country’s social and economic development. The Trust is also a testament to NDB Investment Banking Cluster’s commitment to facilitating knowledge sharing and promoting a culture of youth empowerment.
