Hungary – Hai Péter Pham Wins 2014/15 Kronospan Scholarship
Every year the Kronospan Scholarship gives young hopefuls the unique opportunity for placement in a fully-paid, four year Bachelor’s study program at prestigious business school Babson College, USA. Since the launch of the scholarship in 2011, the program has continuously grown in popularity and become a well-known opportunity within top high schools across Central and Eastern Europe.
The 2014/15 application cycle of the coveted scholarship saw the Kronospan Foundation receiving more applications than ever. Outstanding students among the applicants did not only exhibit impeccable grades, but also motivation, drive and poise; essential qualities the Foundation is looking for in a Kronospan Scholar.
With the large pool of high quality applicants in the 2014/15 application cycle, competition was keen among the participants. However, Hai Péter Pham from Szombathely in Hungary impressed with his engaging personality, strong work ethic and strong passion for business to go along with his good grades and test scores. As an ambitious young man, Péter was determined to come out on top when he applied for the scholarship, but still in disbelief when he finally won the scholarship. “The day I was made aware of Babson’s decision was probably the best day of my life. I’m literally living a dream right now. I’m a confident person, and I always had faith in myself, but I’m still digesting that I’ve been selected for a fantastic journey like this. ‘Grateful’ does not reflect my feelings towards the Kronospan Foundation and Babson College. They’ve put an immense amount of trust in me, and in the upcoming 4 years, I will do everything I can to pay it back, and make sure they will not regret it.”
Péter will start his four year Bachelor’s program in fall of 2015, joining a group of already three promising Kronospan Scholars at Babson; Claudia, Kamil and Lizaveta.
