The Flower Scholarship ̶ the first student-to-student scholarship of TalTech
In spring 2019 the Student Council of TalTech School of Business Governance initiated a scholarship campaign that invites the graduates’ families, friends and relatives to donate the money they would spend on graduation flowers to the scholarship fund which would support the future students’ studies. The donation will be made in the name of the graduate, who will give up the flowers but receive a brooch pin Sigma as a sign of donation. Sigma – the sign of sum also symbolises unity and togetherness.
The Dean of TalTech SBG adds: “This initiative transforms graduation flowers into knowledge. Flowers wither but knowledge has a lasting value. Hence, we decided to add an additional euro to every donated euro. This is our opportunity to give at least some students a possibility to fully dedicate themselves to their studies.”
Depending on the amount received, the maximum number of scholarships will be awarded. The School of Business and Governance doubles the donated amount of money. The amount of one scholarship is €1,000.
Give up your flowers and plant a grant for future students!
