How much money should be deposited in the bank at 8% interest compounded annually in order to be able to supply the money for the scholarship at the end of each year?

Since it is compounded each year, and 1440 is then taken out, only 1440 needs to be the interest. We are assuming the minumum, so $1440 tops. This means that the relationship is: \[8/100 = 1440/x\] so \[x=1440/(8/100) = 1440(100)/8 = 144000/8 = 18000\] thus he needs to deposit 18000.
