"Franco Buzzi Memorial" Scholarship
Franco Buzzi, former group Vice President and one of the main architects of the extraordinary development undertaken by the company as it transitioned from a private entity to one listed on the Stock Exchange and in the national and international expansion that followed, passed away in 2011.
The "Franco Buzzi Memorial" scholarship is an initiative we created in honor of his ardent interests: first, the company, to which he dedicated his life; second, the bright young people who would represent the future lifeblood of the company itself; and last but not least, the USA.
With this scholarship, we would like to offer motivated young people the opportunity to take a leap forward in their professional lives, an opportunity that can open up new possibilities and prepare them for new challenges. At the age of 22 and a trailblazer at the time, Franco himself won a scholarship from the prestigious Fulbright Student Program to study in the USA.
This is why Buzzi SpA decided to award two scholarships each year offering the unique opportunity of participating in a Master’s program at one of the best universities in the United States, and which will cover the tuition fees as well as the standard ancillary costs such as travel, insurance and living expenses.
We are proud to support this initiative because we know that it will represent a significant opportunity for the personal and professional growth of deserving, eager and motivated young people.
And we like to think that Franco is also part of this growth process.
