Aziza Suleimenova, an MSc student at the Chemical and Materials Engineering Department under the supervision of Dr. Stavros Poulopoulos, Associate Professor at the Chemical and Materials Engineering Department, was accepted to the University of Grenoble Alpes to join the Master 2 program of Applied Corporate Management after being awarded a scholarship in the context of Abay-Verne (AV) Scholarship Program.
AV scholarship program is a joint program of Kazakhstan and the French governments, which allows students to obtain their master degree in one of the Universities of France.
The main requirement to apply for this program is to be admitted by a French University. The scholarship offers the students a stipend of 800 euros per month from the Ministry of Education and Science of Kazakhstan, while the obligation regarding the payment of registration fee for education is fulfilled by the French government. There was a great competition this year between candidates for a scholarship from the whole Kazakhstan, which makes the achievement of Aziza more important.
A statement from Aziza herself is following:
“The M.Sc. program at Nazarbayev University helped me to choose the program that I am going to study in France. I was accepted to the University of Grenoble Alpes on Master 2 program of Applied Corporate Management. Learning the processes and the technologies of production during the first year of Master of chemical and materials engineering, I decided to further increase my area of knowledge and learn how to organize and manage the chemical production as an enterprise. The support and the reference letter from my supervisor, Dr. Poulopoulos, was of outmost importance.”
