Batelco, Bahrain’s leading telecommunications provider continues with its support for the Crown Prince International Scholarship Programme (CPISP), as part of its commitment to educational initiatives in the Kingdom. Batelco has renewed its Platinum sponsorship of the programme, pledging a total of BD1 million over the next five years, and recently handed over a cheque to the value of BD200,000 as its contribution for 2013.

The cheque presentation took place recently at the Court of the Crown Prince, where Batelco Group CE Shaikh Mohamed bin Isa Al Khalifa presented the cheque to Court President Shaikh Khalifa bin Duaij Al Khalifa.

Shaikh Mohamed said that Batelco was delighted to make this commitment to the CPISP which supports 3rd level education for some of the brightest Bahraini students.

“Since the formation of the CPISP in 2006, Batelco has been a keen supporter and has previously donated significant funds to assist with the success of the programme.”

Shaikh Mohamed also praised the vision and efforts of HRH the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, in investing in Bahraini youth and launching educational and training programmes aimed at developing the talents of outstanding students.

Shaikh Khalifa extened thanks to Batelco on behalf of the CPISP committee saying that the support of Bahrain’s leading organisations such as Batelco was invaluable in the continuing success of the programme which aims to develop the talents and abilities of outstanding Bahraini students and provide them with the best educational opportunities at top international universities.
