stc Bahrain, a world-class digital enabler, and the American University of Bahrain (AUBH), the Kingdom’s first American-style University, have joined forces to enhance accessibility to education through digital means, by offering new AUBH students who will be enrolling in the fall 2021 semester and will pay their tuition and fees through stc Pay prior to the 15th of August, a gift of up to BHD 1,000, offering them better access to education.
This joint marketing promotion follows the MoU signing by stc and AUBH last month, which saw the two brands come together to empower the education sector both locally and in the region. The campaign, which is the first of its kind in the Kingdom with a University joining forces with a telecom for a co-branded promotion, was also born following the significant rise of digital payments as a result of Covid-19.
Commenting on this partnership, stc Bahrain CEO Eng. Nezar Banabeela, said: “We are delighted to solidify our partnership with AUBH. This partnership will help accelerate the use of digital payment in Bahrain. Our core mission as a leader is to provide digital solutions that support students with their education in the university, and through this partnership we aim even higher in supporting the young generation as they are the future of this country. We continue to push towards the advancement of Bahrain’s digital vision”.
Elaborating further, Dr. Susan E. Saxton, AUBH Founding President stated: “Aligning the telecom and education sectors allows AUBH to fulfill its mission of accessibility to quality education right here in the Kingdom. Our collaborative payment initiative with stc represents AUBH’s efforts to financially assist the deserving students across Bahrain and the GCC. As we have all been impacted by the Covid pandemic, AUBH Management and Boards feel the responsibility to do what we can to help students get back to class.”
As a leading digital enabler, stc Bahrain is committed towards investing in the country’s education and support the 2030 vision, and through stc pay and other outstanding services, the operator aims to revolutionize the telecommunication landscape in Bahrain by providing unrivaled digital solutions to its customers.
