Hungary, Slovakia and Bulgaria - The Kronospan Scholarship is back for its 2014/15 Application Cycle
Offered by the Kronospan Foundation every year, the 2014/15 application cycle of the Kronospan Scholarship is setting a special focus on finding potential candidates from Hungary, Slovakia and Bulgaria. The opportunity is for placement in a four-year Bachelor's study program at Babson College, USA with enrollment in fall 2015.
Last year’s winner, Lizaveta Litvinava from Belarus, has spent a busy summer preparing for Babson. “The Kronospan Foundation gave me the opportunity to spend the summer participating in an intensive English language course, which I completed with the highest grade in my class. This gave me the confidence I needed before starting my studies in the competitive environment of Babson.”
Lizaveta was one of the applicants from last year’s focus country Belarus, who used the unique opportunity of the Scholarship Launch Event in Minsk to meet Babson’s Dean of Admissions, Courtney Minden. Lizaveta stood out from the crowd not only through her willingness to work hard, but also through her enthusiasm for Kronospan and the program.
This year Mrs. Minden, together with representatives of the Kronospan Foundation, will spend a week travelling through Central and Eastern Europe to meet potential scholars. The journey will start out in Hungary on September 22nd, 2014 where Kanizsai Dorottya Gimnázium in Szombathely will host the Scholarship Launch Event. Mrs. Minden’s visit will provide the opportunity for students as well as parents to listen to an in depth presentation of Babson, its academic curriculum, campus life and the application process. A large section of the event will be dedicated to open questions from participants and provide the possibility to speak to Babson’s Dean of Admissions in person.
Similarily Kronospan Scholarship Launch Events will also be held in Banská Å tiavnica, Slovakia (23.09.14, Gymnázium Andreja KmeÅ¥a, A. Gwerkovej - Göllnerovej) and in Bourgas, Bulgaria (25.09.14, English Language School Geo Milev).
