Scholarship Program of “GEN. PROTOGEROV” FOUNDATION

We, the members of “Gen. Protogerov” Foundation, believe that education is a key factor and basis for our society development – not only ineconomic sensebut also spiritually. Of course the leading role belongs to young people, those of unbending spirit, novelty and success of the next day. Today in Bulgaria we have got a very serious problem that will soon spread out enormously – the brain potential of Bulgaria keeps on going abroad mainly because of economic reasons. Unfortunately it refers primarily to adolescents at the age of 20-26. The consequences thereof are not only economic, but also social.

Following the foundation goals and our purpose to reduce this risk, we, the members of “Gen. Protogerov” Foundation,  are happy to announce that together with the Faculty of Economics at"St. Cyril and St. Methodius" University of Veliko Tarnovoestablish a scholarship program named after Gen. Alexander Protogerov.

This project aims to create preconditions for the students of University of Veliko Tarnovo, who have shown skills and knowledge in their area in order to graduate, after that to succeed in achieving their plans here.
