The third edition of the scholarship named after engineer G.B. Maddalena worth €10,000, established for the first time in 2019, on the occasion of the company’s 100th anniversary, has also been confirmed for 2023.
The initiative, reserved for the children of the company’s employees enrolled in secondary school and intending to enroll in university, aims to contribute concretely to the cultural and professional growth of future generations. Investing in youth training, in fact, is a very important aspect especially from a social point of view as it simultaneously means enabling young people to acquire skills that lead to a personal and specialized growth.
The project is in line with the goal number 4 of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and to promote inclusive learning opportunities for everyone.”
AlmaLaurea’s 2022 report about the profile and employment status of graduates highlights how the economic, cultural and social status of the family of origin can be impactful in the decision to pursue a higher education. The possibility of obtaining a scholarship such as the one provided by Maddalena S.p.A., certainly represents a great opportunity for the children of the Company’s employees to start building their future from the solid foundation of knowledge.
This initiative is also one of the many Social Sustainability projects that also led to the drafting of the Company’s first Sustainability Report, which has been recently presented.
The “G.B. Maddalena” Scholarship is renewed every three years for reasons related to the composition of the corporate population, and goes to fund undergraduate pathways for those who meet the merit requirements set forth in the call for applications.
Please note that applications are open until July 31st, 2023.
