Telenor Awards Ten Students With Full Scholarship

Telenor opened its ninth consecutive Scholarship Programme at a special event in its headquarters. Participants were welcomed by Telenor Chief Human Resources Officer, Mr. Boris Tatchev.

“Becoming a scholar is an achievement itself as only few are selected among hundreds of candidates. It means they have the knowledge and potential, but most of all, a clear vision of how they want to develop as professionals. In Telenor we believe that we should invest in these exceptional young people and we are very glad that about one third of all our trainees and scholars continue their career in the company”, Mr. Tatchev said at the event.

Traditionally, participants in the programme receive a monthly scholarship until obtaining their Bachelor Degrees. In addition, they have the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience by working with a personal tutor and taking part in the company’s summer traineeship program. Each scholar will join a different team in the following divisions: Strategic Finance, Legal Affairs, Consumer Segment, Value Creation, Consumer Services, Technology Implementation, Technology Planning, Technology Operations and Technology Strategy and Network Performance.

Telenor scholarship and traineeship programs are the company’s most popular youth initiatives with over 400 students who have participated so far. In 2013 Telenor launched a new annual campaign aimed at socially engaged young people. It provides two Bulgarians with the chance to take part in the international Telenor Youth Summit held in Oslo.
