On March 12, 2016 Educate the Planet Foundation closed its application submission campaign. As a result, the most prospective and motivated candidates from 3 countries were awarded scholarships covering full tuition and accommodation fees for the courses of their choice.
Applications for the 1st Scholarship Awarding were submitted by candidates from December 14, 2015 till March 12, 2016. Since the launch of the application campaign, the foundation received more than 5,000 applications from 30 countries for a wide variety of programmes, ranging from IELTS courses and Internship programmes, to Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
The winners of the 1st Scholarship Awarding were the following candidates:
Kanykei Mukhanbedova – Kyrgyzstan
Shahin Mahmud – Bangladesh
Haypheng Aing – Cambodia
The awarding procedure in Educate the Planet is strongly controlled to ensure unbiased and fair choice of the most prospective applicants. At first, all candidates were required to fully complete their application forms, attach the necessary documents, as well as record short self-promotional videos and submit motivation essays. As soon as all eligible applications passed the shortlisting stage, the Board of Advisors took part in an anonymous voting session to choose the most promising and talented candidates from the list. The Educate the Planet Awarding Committee consists of trusted individuals with expertise in international business, art, linguistics, environmental protection, government relations, technology, investments, and more.
Educate the Planet scholarships are a global initiative funded by the education foundation in cooperation with partner organisations, including multinational corporations, financial institutions, private organisations, educational establishments, charities, funds and individuals.
