Bank Sohar recently pledged support to local youth partaking in the Oman Ambassadors Award - an accolade recognizing the individual achievements of academic scholarship holders representing Oman abroad. The Award recognizes achievements in educational projects, scientific research, artistic and literary talent, as well as the philanthropic initiatives of Omani youth abroad. The award ceremony will take place on 1st Jan 2019.

The sponsorship signing agreement was held recently between Bank Sohar and Oman Ambassadors Award for International Students; Mr. Haider Al Lawati, Unit Head of Marketing Communication at Bank Sohar, signed the digital agreement on behalf of the Bank alongside a representative of the Oman Ambassadors Award for International Students.

Commenting on the bank’s participation in the award, Mr. Ahmed Al Musalmi, CEO of Bank Sohar, said, “Our commitment to young Omanis and recognizing educational excellence is unwavering, it is in fact an honour for the bank to participate in this prestigious award and acknowledge the achievements of those representing the Sultanate across the international arena. Supporting educational attainment, outstanding performance, and the contribution of students - at home and abroad - is a central component of our CSR programme and strategy to empower local communities with a view to achieving sustainable value, growth, and prosperity”.

Launched in 2015, the Oman Ambassadors Award for International Students was established by the Omani Student Consultative Council in the UK aided by the Cultural Attaché in London. The first award coincided with Oman’s 45th National Day in Swansea, followed by second and third editions that were held in Birmingham and London, UK for 2016/2017 respectively.  This year’s edition is witnessing the highest number of participation with Omani students joining from the various foreign countries.
