CBS High Achievement Scholarship

As part of our commitment to attracting and inspiring the best individuals to the financial services sector, the Central Bank of Seychelles (CBS) is delighted to launch its High Achievement Scholarship that will be administered by the Bank. One scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding individual each year to pursue undergraduate studies at an international university. For 2018 entry, we are offering a scholarship to study Forensic Accounting. Forensic Accounting is a branch of accounting that is often used to investigate white-collar crimes and can aid with fraud prevention. It is an integration of accounting, auditing and investigative skills.
