The latest scholarships to study in the UK and USA have just been awarded by Poland’s TDJ Foundation
Three children of TDJ employees have been awarded a year-long scholarship to further their education abroad as part of TDJ’s annual competition: Zofia Regulska from Gorzow Wielkopolski, Marzena Piecuch from Gorlice and Magdalena Wozniak, also from Gorlice. Zosia and Marzena will begin studying at England’s prestigious Ampleforth College in September. Magdalena Wozniak, the third finalist, will be the first to break new ground by going to study for a year in United States, starting in August. The scholarships are funded by the TDJ Foundation
The College Scholarship is a program of the TDJ Foundation created in cooperation with Ampleforth College. As part of the initiative, children of TDJ Group employees from across Poland can spend a year studying at one of the best British schools. Each program participant is provided with a free year of school fees and other expenses, such as board and lodging. The aim of the College Scholarship is to facilitate access to education at the best schools in the world for selected young students who have been able to achieve very good results in science.
“This is the third class to have been awarded the College Scholarship. So far, eight scholars have attended Ampleforth College,” states Janusz Gorol, Director of Educational Projects at the TDJ Foundation. “Next to join the group will be Marzena and Sophia, and also Magda, who will be the first to attend school in the United States. All three scholarship winners excelled during the three-stage recruitment process, showing determination, social commitment and outstanding focus on personal development,” adds Janusz Gorol.
