Who We Help

The 2025 Foundation will award bursaries to individuals displaying the likely academic talent to gain a professional banking qualification with the Institute and/or one of the Institute’s learning partners, but are unable to pursue a course of study because of their financial circumstances. 
These may include, but are not limited to:
·      School leavers wishing to pursue a career in banking
·      Minority groups currently under-represented within the banking profession
The 2025 Foundation will work to mobilise the Chartered Banker Institute Fellowship as donors, mentors and facilitators, and may fund financial education work and other related charitable activity.
Please note that financial assistance will be restricted to individuals currently living in the UK (and who have been living in the UK for at least 3 years prior to making an application). We regret we will not be able to offer assistance to overseas students.
