Aker Scholarship awards grants to students who can make a difference to the development of industry and society at large. The grant is awarded by Anne Grete Eidsvig and Kjell Inge Røkke’s Charitable Foundation for Education, funded by donations from Kjell Inge Røkke’s private company TRG. Aker handles the running of the foundation Aker Scholarship, with CEO Øyvind Eriksen as Chairman of the Board.
Aker Scholarship gives students the opportunity to benefit from new impulses, networks and first-rate knowledge. Students with abilities, documented social engagement and personal potential in all academic and knowledge fields are eligible for grants. An academic committee evaluates the candidates’ academic qualifications. Support is provided for the full period of study, and the scheme is designed to supplement other schemes so that recipients receive full coverage of all costs, including accommodation and living expenses, for the duration of their stay. This means that students can be debt-free after completing their studies.
