Kronospan Scholarship

The opportunity for one of your students to earn a B.Sc degree in the USA, fully paid for by the
Kronospan Foundation

The Kronospan Foundation was founded in 2011 by the global wood-based panel manufacturer Kronospan (www.kronospan-worldwide.com). Our mission, vision and values are rooted in the core principles of the company, focusing on reinvesting resources into local communities and promoting sustainable development. We want to place a special focus on what we believe are moral foundations of a healthy society – the protection and preservation of our natural environment as well as providing children with the necessary educational  opportunities in order to be successful in life. 

One of our core engagements is the Kronospan Scholarship, through which we offer the opportunity to one young hopeful every year, to earn a Bachelor’s degree at Babson College, America’s #1 school for Entrepreneurship. Because this is a need-based scholarship, the Kronospan Foundation covers all related costs throughout the four years of study, including tuition, housing, textbooks, health insurance and transport to and from the USA.

Babson College (www.babson.edu) is located in Wellesley, Massachusetts, just 20 kilometers outside of Boston. Recognized as one of the United States’ Top 20 Business Programmes for 15 consecutive years, the admission is based on highly rigorous criteria, whereas the students belong to the world's most talented ones. Babson College shapes leaders our world needs most: those who can envision and navigate change, understand global perspectives and motivate teams with a common purpose. In 2015 Babson received the following awards:  #1 for Entrepreneurship (US News), #1 for ROI (PayScale), #1 Best College in the US (Money Magazine).

Kronospan and the Kronospan Foundation are proud to work with a strong partner like Babson College to educate and train future leaders. Since the scholarship programme has started in 2011, we have been honoured to send four very bright and promising candidates to Babson College, Claudia Ogrezeanu (Romania), Kamil Altintasoglu (Romania), Lizaveta Litvinava (Belarus) and Hai Peter Pham (Hungary).

Students applying for this scholarship will have to demonstrate an exceptional academic performance and will likely graduate towards the top of their class. They will additionally have held leadership positions and dedicated time to the improvement of their communities. Within this programme, the scholars will be offered summer and winter internship programmes at Kronospan beginning after the first year and positioning the student for a position of employment within the company after the completion of the scholarship. Kronospan and Babson College are looking for highly motivated, entrepreneurial young people who will be inspired by the opportunity to study in one of the world’s premier universities, network with other brilliant students and one day contribute positively to their communities.


The Kronospan Foundation is delighted to be able to offer the opportunity to apply for this programme to the students at your school. We hope that you will share our enthusiasm and promote the scholarship in your school’s community.
