Grant Thornton employees awarded with Blockchain scholarship

We are proud to announce that Ms Jessica Borg from the Fintech Team, and Mr Chris Cristina from Transaction Advisory Services, have been awarded with the first Blockchain and DLT scholarship grant in the history of the University of Malta. Jessica and Chris form part of a group of seventeen other students.

In September of 2018, the Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA) and the University of Malta signed a Memorandum of Understanding which established a €300,000 scholarship grant for a period of 3 years aimed at students who want to pursue their studies in Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) at Masters and PhD levels.

All awardees will be reading for a Masters degree in Blockchain and DLT, with some students specialising in Law and DLT, Finance and Business and DLT and ICT and DLT. The investment in these 19 awardees amounts to €160,000.
