Lappset Group supports the activities of the Lapland University of Applied Sciences by granting student scholarships and achievement awards. The intention is to encourage students to seek employment in the commercial sector and international business. The scholarships are part of the 50th anniversary of the Lappset Group and the company's policy of social responsibility and university cooperation.
Lappset has donated two thousand euros to the Scholarship Fund of the Lapland University of Applied Sciences to be distributed to successful students of various fields of study. As the scholarship benefactor, Lappset would like to see the €500 scholarships awarded to academic achievers studying the fields of business, sports or physiotherapy and/or technology, and awarded as recognition for a successfully concluded graduate thesis conducted in conjunction with a bachelor’s or master’s degree from the Lapland University of Applied Sciences.
The scholarship can be awarded to a student whose graduate thesis provides significant improvements for business, for example, by creating a new business model, innovating a new business idea, advancing an existing business process, or otherwise producing data that directly serves the commercial sector.
Achievement award encourages globalisation
Wide-ranging language skills and cultural awareness are key elements for succeeding on the global markets. With this is mind, Lappset wants to encourage students with this special award for achievement awarded by the Lapland University of Applied Sciences for students who demonstrate skills in globalisation and hold wide-ranging proficiency in languages.
The achievement award for globalisation can be awarded to students who, in their own activities and studies, have broadly and actively promoted preparedness for business that supports globalisation, such as international skills in communication, interaction and networking, and in their studies have focused on learning at least three different languages, thereby ensuring a sound foundation for operating in international business or organisations.
Using this achievement award, Lappset would particularly like to highlight the importance of the Swedish language as a part of a versatile combination of language skills. Proficiency in Swedish is of special importance within our region, as it opens doors to our western neighbour of Sweden and to other Nordic nations.
The rector of Lapland University of Applied Sciences is responsible for selecting the recipients of the achievement award on the basis of proposals made by the university’s Scholarship Committee.
