A notarial deed was signed to establish the "Foundation for the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin Development ". Its main goal will be to increase the educational opportunities for young people, including gifted youth who find themselves in a difficult life situation, by providing them with education at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin.

We want our foundation to start operating in the new academic year, right after the end of the entire legislative process - says prof. Jacek Wróbel, rector of WPUT.

Selected high school graduates from all over Poland will receive scholarships and financial aid throughout the entire period of study from funds that will be obtained from external entities, the so-called founders.

In our efforts, we want to focus on creating appropriate conditions for development and education for gifted youth who graduate from high school. At ZUT they will have access to modern and practical knowledge and a broad research infrastructure - assures prof. Jacek Wróbel

As part of the foundation, we will also provide advice and expert assistance in the field of employment and professional activation - he adds.

The main partner and founder of the "Foundation for the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin Development " is Przedsiębiorstwo Budowlane CALBUD Sp. z o.o., which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

On this occasion, instead of the anniversary, we decided to invest PLN 400,000 in the future of young people. Personally, I think that in a way I owe my career to the opportunity to study in Szczecin and to the people I met here, the job and development opportunities I got right after graduation - says Edward Osina, president of the CALBUD construction company and a member of The Council of the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin

A declaration of intent to establish a foundation was signed on Thursday, April 15, 2021. On behalf the university: prof. Jacek Wróbel, rector of the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin and on behalf of Przedsiębiorstwo Budowlane Calbud: Edward Osnia and Jan Gackowski.
