Majority of them will have college education while few will take masters degree in the said country.
BDA exec.director told the scholars to bring with them Bangsamoro identity, project good qualities of being respectful, be firm, determined and committed to finish their respective studies.
“Think that you are there to acquire knowledge to be of service to Bangsamoro”, he stated.

BDA has been a partner in facilitating the program e.g. information dissemination and among others.
For the agency, this effort is in line with the objective of building the capacity of the Bangsamoro especially the youth who are expected to be future leaders.
