The Belize Bank held its 6th Annual Scholarship Award Ceremony on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 where 16 students from across the country were awarded. As a part of the scholarship, 10 of those students will receive full high school funding while 6 will get for sixth form. The 16 also received school supplies and will have access to a tutoring and mentorship program. According to Lyndon Guiseppi, Chairman, mentorship is an integral part of the program and as a result, managers or officers in the districts have been identified as these tutors or mentors.

The Bank received over 200 applications this year but those with the most need and the best grades were awarded. Awardees were chosen by a committee which reviewed grades as well as the home financial situation. Their economic stances were considered as a way to give them equal opportunities.

Since the inception of the scholarship program, the Belize Bank has awarded over one hundred scholarships.
