In May 2019, Metinvest and the higher educational institutions of Zaporizhzhia, namely Zaporizhzhia Polytechnic National University and Zaporizhzhia National University signed a Memorandum of Cooperation, which provides for the payment of scholarships to the best students. The scholarship program fund for the first half of the year amounted to more than 2 million 300 thousand hryvnias.
For the first time, scholarships began to be paid in September 2019. Now, according to the results of the winter session, 415 of the best Metinvest scholarship students have been pointed out. Students of I-IV undergraduate courses, as well as first-year graduate students will receive scholarships ranging from 700 to 1700 UAH, respectively. The rating of the best scholarship students was compiled taking into account academic performance, involvement in company projects and the results of practice at Metinvest enterprises in city of Zaporizhzhia.
Since March, based on the corporate university of “Zaporizhstal” Works, trainings have also been organized for students that promote the development of creativity and professional competencies, and involvement in the corporate culture of the company. Over 40 students attended the first trainings.
