"These young people are courageous and creative, with enormous potential. I want to congratulate you and wish you perseverance and many successes ", - said the Minister of Education, Culture and Research, Monica Babuc.
The Scholarships for disadvantaged young people was launched in 2010, implemented by the Center for Information and Education, with the support of a foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
The aim of the program is to contribute to the education of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds so as to eliminate the inequality of access to studies, so that all young people can subsequently gain a profession and integrate into society.
