Each year, Korsnäs allocated scholarships to students at the University of Gävle. Scholarships are awarded to students in the arts or social sciences and to students in engineering or the natural sciences.
"Korsnäs' operations span many areas of expertise and it is therefore satisfying to be able to reward excellent performance in areas other than the traditional engineering fields," says Thomas Press, Training Manager at Korsnäs.
This year, the scholarships will be presented on 20 May during a study visit and lunch at the company.
