Hoping that the scholarship fund will be disbursed over the coming days, months, years and In sha Allah decades covering & benefitting deserving candidates representing Minorities, Female Candidate from financially & socially challenging backgrounds and Candidates from underprivileged and neglected sections of our society.

We will continue to contribute towards this fund to the best of our abilities and hope our future generations would follow suit and continue this enterprise.

With an initial investment contribution from 20 Alumni we still have plenty of depth in the MBA Banking & Finance Class of '95 for others to come forward upon their convenience .

A special thanks to all generous donors from the MBA Banking & Finance Class of '95 and a big pat on the back to those of us who have stepped up and contributed more than what was required.

It has been a journey of 25 years where all of us after our graduation have gone through their individual trials, tribulations, successes & joyful moments. By the grace of God we have all negotiated these curve balls well. This has enabled us now to give back to our society and what better than in the current challenging time of Covid-19 when the society needs us the most.

We are proud to have stepped up together and delivered for Ourselves, Our Alma Mater & Our Country .

Alhamdullilah, the credit for this goes to The Almighty, the prayers of our parents, teachers, support of our families and the consistent support we received from the Alumni Team at IBA who have guided us throughout the process.
