As an indigenous bank, 1st National Bank St. Lucia Limited has always demonstrated a keen interest in educating the masses. To quote one of our astute Nobel Laureates, Sir Arthur Lewis, “the fundamental cure for poverty is not money, but knowledge”. Through its commitment to education and the establishment of the Francis J. Carasco Memorial Scholarship, and The Ferrel V. Charles Scholarship, the Bank continues to contribute meaningfully to the development and growth of the nation.
