Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing on behalf of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA), the global trade body that represents the international capital markets, to inform you that we are once again offering scholarships in 2022 to individuals from countries in Sub-Saharan Africa who are unable to pursue a financial qualification due to their economic circumstances, following the success of the 2021 scholarship programme.
There will be 20 scholarships that will be available to young people, between 19 to 30, who are interested in a career in finance from the following countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: Ethiopia Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and South Africa. This forms part of a wider scholarship programme of ICMA, where we also provide similar opportunities in a number of Asian countries.
The scholarships provide an opportunity to study an executive education offering from ICMA and obtain a diploma in debt capital markets, securities & derivatives or in financial market operations and is part of ICMA’s mission to raise standards and support inclusion in financial markets.
We would very much appreciate if you could assist us in announcing this scholarship programme to your students and to your wider network to ensure that this opportunity reaches the students who wish to take advantage of this opportunity.
